Statement from LNP Leader Deb Frecklington

10th October 2018

The LNP Party Room has today unanimously resolved that LNP Members of Parliament will be granted a conscience vote when considering Labor’s Termination of Pregnancy Bill 2018.

It has been a longstanding position of the LNP Party Room that matters about the creation or ending of life are treated as matters of conscience.

Personally, I have carefully considered the Bill and I am not of a conscience to support it.

I will be outlining the reasons why in the parliamentary debate.

Once again, I call for a respectful debate on this deeply emotional and complex issue.
