Religious freedom laws should have been discussed and settled “at least two years ago” instead of being introduced to Parliament in the “shadow of a federal election,” according to Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon.

“This was promised prior to the last election, and now here we are five minutes to an election and Labor, the opposition, hasn’t seen the bill,” he told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“And what we wanted, I think almost all of us, was some bipartisanship.

“We want a consensus, and you don’t best build a consensus by putting the damn thing into Parliament in the shadow of a federal election.”
