Labor’s shocker Misinformation Bill to be debated in parliament today

The Coalition will today take the fight
against Labor’s deeply flawed Misinformation Bill to the floor of

Shadow Communications Minister David
Coleman will lead a
debate in the House on the many problems with
plan and acknowledge the community leaders highlighting
these faults.

This will be the first time that Members
have had a chance to debate the merits of Labor’s draft Bill since
submissions closed last month.

“Labor has so far refused to release the
thousands of submissions
and comments which included
serious, detailed
critiques of the Bill,”Mr Coleman said.

“The Albanese Government has managed to
unite civil liberties groups, lawyers, religious institutions and human rights
groups against this appalling

“But the Government continues to sit on thousands of submissions.
We only
know about the opposition of so many
groups because those organisations have self-published their views on the Bill.

“It’s time that the Government stopped
playing games and just released the
submissions to
the public. Then, everyone will be able to see the full extent of the
opposition to this attack on free speech.”

Today’s Private Member’s Motion will highlight
the Bill’s appalling impact on free speech in Australia. Coalition Members will
support a call to bin the Bill.
