Marriage Equality Bill and Debate on Constitutional Validity

Hon LYNN MacLAREN (Thursday, 29 November 2012): Thank you, Mr President.

This bill and similar bills have been read in other jurisdictions; I know that is not the most important thing, but other states in Australia have also heard this bill and it has not been ruled out of order on that basis. But, of course, we would be very keen to hear your ruling at some point.
