Earlier this week the senate officially killed off the Coalition’s plan for a plebiscite on marriage equality after several crossbench members voted with Labor to defeat the plan 33 to 29.
Following the decision, attorney-general senator George Brandis said the vote will add years of setbacks to a decision on same-sex marriage in Australia.
And as it turns out, prime minister Malcolm Turnbull won’t be working towards progressing the issue any time soon.
Speaking on 3AW this morning, Turnbull said: “We have no plans to take any other measures on this issue.
“We took a plebiscite to the election.”
