A Result On Whether Australia Will Vote On Same-Sex Marriage

Australia will have to take part in a postal vote on Same-Sex Marriage.

Two groups challenged the plan as unconstitutional, taking particular aim at the way the survey would be funded.

The challenge is focused on the $120 million set aside for the survey, which is to be drawn from a fund available for "urgent and unforeseen" matters.

That fund can be used without parliamentary approval.

The case was dismissed in court this afternoon and Australian will begin to give their views on Same Sex Marriage next week.

A result is expected in November.
