This was a Private Members Bill introduced in to the Upper House by Penny Sharpe MLC and co-sponsored by Trevor Khan MLC. It was then debated in the Lower House on 8 June 2018 and went into the early hours of 9 June 2018.
The Bill was successful with the majority of the House supporting it.
It is very unique for a Private Members Bill to have such an overwhelming amount of support.
Unfortunately the NSW Minister for Women, and the NSW Minister for Family & Community Services opposed the Bill. It is a shame that these Minister's voted against supporting NSW women.
