Equal marriage in Parliament again in August: Bandt

Greens MP Adam Bandt has secured time in Parliament in August for further discussion on the issue of equal marriage rights.

Last year, Parliament passed Mr Bandt's motion calling on MPs to consult their constituencies on marriage equality rights for all couples. MPs will now be able to report back to Parliament on August 17 with the results of their consultations.

"Over the last few months people have approached their MPs around the country, seeking that Australia move into the 21st century by allowing all citizens to marry their loved ones."

"The Greens look forward to progressing this debate and achieving marriage equality."
