Attorney General Michaelia Cash has said she is ‘disappointed’ with five of her colleagues crossing the floor to support Labors amendments regarding the discrimination bill.

With the bill passing the parliament but not coming to the senate, the Attorney General said: “We now have created huge uncertainty”.

Five coalition members supported Labors amendments and Ms Cash stated “Of course I’m disappointed, this was a commitment that we took to the 2019 election.”

She continued saying ‘It’s up to Labor’ if they want to stand by the side of the Prime Minister and Coalition to protect people from discrimination.

Ms Cash said to Jim Wilson, “Unfortunately I would say they just don’t want to do that”.

There is a possibility the bill may be pulled from the debate as the government pursues further consultation.

“We need to get it right.”
