MPs accused of trying to rush gay marriage bill

Newstalk ZB 26 Jan 2013
Members of Parliament are being accused of being desperate to ram through the same sex marriage bill.

Family First says both National and Labour want to push it through as quickly as possible, to get it off the agenda.

National Director Bob McCoskrie says the two parties know their core voter support bases aren’t happy with the bill.

He says they’re trampling over the rights of New Zealanders to have their chance to speak and contribute to debate on the issue.

Bob McCoskrie says the fact a record of more than 20,000 submissions has been received on the bill shows just how important the issue is.
