Our submission to the High Court to stop the same-sex postal survey now is now available online.
PIAC is representing Andrew Wilkie, Member for Denison, PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) and Felicity Marlowe, a mother in a same-sex relationship with three young children.
Our clients are seeking to stop the government proceeding with the postal vote on same sex marriage on the basis that the government does not have the power to conduct the postal vote without parliamentary approval.
At a preliminary hearing in the High Court on 11 August, the government agreed that it will not post out any papers in the same-sex postal vote before 12 September, to allow this case to be heard.
The case has been listed for an urgent hearing on 5-6 September.
