Cleveland MP Mark Robinson has denied claims he broke party ranks over amending the civil unions legislation.
Mr Robinson said he was ambushed by journalists at Parliament House on Monday night and was misinterpreted, when talking about repealing the civil union legislation.
He said he had not seen the Bill in its entirety so “could not possibly say” how he would vote.
“I haven’t even seen the Bill in its entirety and until I do, I won’t know how I will vote but as a member of a party, it is usual to vote along party lines,” Mr Robinson said.
“What I said was not breaking ranks – once we have the Bill there will be future discussions in the party room.
“(Whether to repeal the legislation or not) It’s a challenge and a balancing act between those who want this legislation repealed and protecting the civil rights of the gay and lesbian community.
“I also said my private view is for repealing this legislation but that’s something I’m discussing with the party.
“I’m fine with Campbell Newman even though he has different views to me. He is pro-gay marriage and I’m not,” Mr Robinson said.
Mr Robinson’s comments on Monday came a week after Dalrymple MP Shane Knuth said he would move to repeal the legislation when Mr Newman tried to endorse the Civil Unions Act.
Mr Knuth named Mr Robinson, Capalaba MP Steve Davies and Redlands MP Peter Dowling as MPs he believed would support his bid to repeal the legislation.
Last week, Mr Newman said the LNP would not repeal the laws, introduced by the then Treasurer Andrew Fraser as a private members Bill in the last days of the Bligh administration.
Instead, the legislation would no longer include a state-sanctioned ceremony, in a bid to appease Christian groups who said it emulated a wedding.
