Morning Tea at Parliament House

Following a morning tea reception at Parliament House on 1st June 2015, Labor leader Bill Shorten and his deputy Tanya Plibersek introduced a bill into the Australian House of Representatives to legalise same-sex marriage. Although debate on the bill was immediately adjourned due to the fact that the opposition does not have the numbers to push it further, Prime Minister Tony Abbott responded by leaving the door open for a possible free vote on the issue in the Liberal party room at some point in the future, with the proviso that it is in response to a cross-party bill.
