Bill Shorten will move a private member's bill on marriage equality in Parliament on Monday.
Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has announced his intention to introduce a private member's bill in Parliament next week over marriage equality.
Deputy Leader Tanya Plibersek will second the motion.
The news came after Ireland voted in favour of marriage equality in a historic referendum.
Mr Shorten voiced his support for Ireland's decision on Twitter on Saturday.
"Time for Australia and our Parliament to embrace marriage equality. Congratulations Ireland," he said
