Clive's Marriage Plan Not A Valid Solution

Media Release
Robert Simms 20 Nov 2015

The Australian Greens say that Clive Palmer's marriage equality plan will not solve discrimination.

"This civil scheme would exist alongside marriage and create a hierarchy of relationship recognition. It certainly wouldn't solve discrimination," The Greens spokesperson on Marriage Equality, Senator Robert Simms, said.

"There is no need to make this a complex issue. The solution here is just to amend the marriage act."

The Greens bill currently before the Parliament would allow same-sex couples the right to marry, but ministers of religion would not be forced to perform marriages.
