If he was invited to a gay wedding, Senator Eric Abetz is unsure if he would attend.

The Liberal Senator for Tasmania has been a leading advocate in the ‘No’ campaign during the same-sex marriage debate, and says that he ‘regrets but respects’ Australia’s decision.

Senator Abetz talks to Brian Carlton about various things to do with same-sex marriage, including the duelling bills before Parliament to legislate Australia’s vote.
