Labor is yet to see the Coalition government’s proposed religious freedom bill, according to opposition leader Anthony Albanese.

Attorney-General Michaelia Cash last week outlined a new form for the controversial bill, which was promised in the last election by Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

The bill has been significantly trimmed from its former iteration, with the Folau clause having been removed – amongst others.

“We want to see the bill,” Mr Albanese said.

“No one’s rung me – my understanding is there have been some conversations between the Attorney-General and the shadow Attorney-General.”

Mr Albanese assured his support for a religious discrimination bill, telling Sky News Australia “you can protect religious freedom while not taking away the freedom of others”.

“People should be able to practice their faith, I’ve always been very respectful of people of faith and it’s something I was raised with, and something I will always hold dear.”
