Australian Greens call on the Government to invest $20 million left over from postal survey into mental health services for LGBTIQ people
While we are all overjoyed about the postal survey result yesterday, this survey should never have happened in the first place and it was a huge waste of tax payer money.
“There are reports that the marriage equality postal survey came in $20 million under budget, said Senator Janet Rice, the Australian Greens LGBTIQ spokesperson.
“Many LGBTIQ people will remain scarred by the traumatic ordeal the Government has put them through. Mr Turnbull could start making amends by investing this $20 million into mental health services for LGBTIQ people.
