Parliament first: 'Will you marry me?'

Liberal MP Warren Entsch has expressed his support as debate begins on same-sex marriage.

Australians are sick of excuses and delays to legalise same-sex marriage, veteran Liberal MP Warren Entsch has told parliament in a stern warning to his colleagues who want to stall passage of new laws.

Mr Entsch described his "very lonely" journey - as a coalition MP advocating for change - as MPs began debating a private bill the Senate passed last week.

"This bill will take from no-one. It simply makes a nation a kinder and fairer place. Delaying equality for every Australian, whether they be from Bundaberg or Fremantle, is simply not good enough," he said on Monday.
