Sponsoring Member: Curtis Pitt MP

Posting Date: 31/05/2012

Responded By: Hon Jarrod Bleijie MP on 18/12/2012

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that an increasing number of people all over the country support equal rights for all Australians when it comes to gay unions.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to not consider any measures that seek the removal (in any way) of the equal rights achieved recently under the provisions of the Civil Partnerships Act 2011.
