With the release today of the NSW Government’s response to the report from the inquiry into One Nation's disastrous Religious Freedom’s bill, Greens MP Jenny Leong has cautioned the Attorney General about his support for the proposed reform. In response to the Attorney General's comments, Jenny Leong MP said:
“There is broad recognition across the community and by experts that there is a need to protect people from being discriminated against on the basis of their religious beliefs, but that is not the same as enshrining protections for people to engage in wholescale discrimination against women and the LGBTIQ+ community, which is what One Nations bill sets out to do.Read more
