EASTERN suburbs politicians from both major parties have voiced support for a conscience vote on same-sex marriage.

 

Wentworth Liberal MP Malcolm Turnbull said he supports a free vote on gay marriage, telling the ABC yesterday he had raised the matter privately with Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.

 

“Nonetheless, the decision as to whether any such vote should be a conscience vote is one for the shadow cabinet and the party room,” Mr Turnbull said in a statement.

 

Labor MPs will be allowed a conscience vote when a backbencher introduces a private members’ bill to amend the Marriage Act next year, after the party backed same-sex marriage at its national conference on Saturdy.
