Alliance makes submissions to marriage rights inquiry

The Select Committee on the Exposure Draft of the Marriage Amendment (Same-Sex Marriage) Bill is currently holding an inquiry into the adequacy or otherwise of the included protections for freedom of conscience and religion.

The Human Rights Law Alliance submitted to the inquiry arguing the importance of freedom of conscience and religion as a fundamental human right. The Alliance also argued that the impacts of changing the law on marriage with respect to this right are significant and should not be overlooked in the event of any legislative change.

Managing Director, Martyn Iles appeared on behalf of the Alliance at the inquiry. Here is the footage of his opening statement.
