ALP praised by pro-family group
Friday, November 24, 2017

Christian advocacy group FamilyVoice Australia has commended the ALP for its "renewed democratic cooperation" after the party completed the FamilyVoice election survey just in time for the poll.

"For many years in Queensland and elsewhere we have not received survey responses from the ALP," said FamilyVoice National Director Ashley Saunders.

"The voters in Queensland are entitled to know where parties stand on key moral questions about faith, family and freedom," he said.

"So we commend the ALP for its renewed democratic cooperation ahead of this election, even though the party scored poorly."

The ALP achieved a total of 39 points out of a possible 100 in the FamilyVoice survey, while the LNP gained 68.

Labor did better than the conservatives on a question about parental responsibility in schools: the ALP agreed to definitely support parental rights in education, including consenting to sexuality and relationships programs, while the LNP response was less definite.

However, the LNP reported a strong commitment to daily prayer in Parliament, while the ALP gave no policy comment on that question.
