High Court gives the all-clear for postal plebiscite on marriage equality to be rolled out

The postal plebiscite on Australian marriage equality will go ahead.

The High Court has rejected a challenge submitted by two parties of marriage equality advocates, which argued that spending $120 million of Treasury funds on a non-emergency situation can’t be supported.

The decision was handed down earlier today – the plebiscite will go ahead.
