On 25 August 2016, I moved that the Legislative Council:
(a) Acknowledges the undertaking given by the Turnbull coalition government that if re-elected it would instigate a plebiscite on the definition of marriage;
(b) notes the overwhelming vote of Western Australians for the Turnbull coalition at the 2016 federal election;
(c) commends the Turnbull coalition for its public statements since its re-election recommitting to fulfil its undertaking; and
(d) calls on the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia to facilitate the fulfilment of the undertaking by giving to the people of this state a say on the definition of marriage and approve a plebiscite.
