Human Rights Amendment Defeated

Renee Webb's bill proposing the inclusion of sexual orientation under the Human Rights Code was resoundly and swiftly defeated moments ago. It appeared that no-one other than Ms Webb was willing to speak on it, although I did miss a little bit of the debate, if we can call it that.

The Bill was defeated in committee, therefore there was no formal vote in the House and therefore - no names.

Profiles in courage indeed.

Update: Nelson Bascome spoke briefly on the bill
