Civil unions in Qld: Attorney-General Bleijie

In conclusion, Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie had to this to say about he civil union proposals in Queensland:

I just say this to Queenslanders who have been debating this publicly lately: all we are doing here
by amending this legislation is allowing a de facto couple who have existing rights under law at the
moment the opportunity to be able to prove that existence and if they want to have a civil ceremony or a
commitment ceremony they can do it, but no longer will we have state government sanctioned
ceremonies. Nothing stops people from privately celebrating that commitment. They can go about their
business and have that private ceremony. What we are simply doing is affording them the legal
protection and opportunity to prove the existence of that relationship for financial and health purposes.
We are then keeping our commitment, which was a solid commitment.
