An Bille um an gCeathrú Leasú is Tríocha ar an mBunreacht (Comhionannas Pósta) 2015: Céim an Choiste - Thirty-fourth Amendment of the Constitution (Marriage Equality) Bill 2015: Committee Stage
I echo the words of Senators Barrett, Power and others in saying that this referendum Bill is about one issue, that of marriage equality. For the last hour, on this one amendment, we have been debating quite a number of extraneous issues and getting sidetracked, as Senator Barrett has said. I urge colleagues to focus on the core issue of marriage equality. I wholeheartedly support the Bill and support the Minister in her opposition to these amendments.
