Coalition moves same sex super changes off to committee

As promised, the coalition has successfully used its numbers in the Senate to slow down and have the same sex super changes referred to committee.

The Australian reports that the Senate's legal and constitutional affairs will examine the government bill, especially the definitions of ``couple relationship'', the ``child'' and ``child of a couple relationship'' and will hear evidence from a range of groups including the federal Attorney-General's Department, the Law Council of Australia and the relationship registries of Tasmania, Victoria and the ACT.
