Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi, who is on the select committee hearing marriage equality submissions, yesterday asked Human Rights Watch GLBT advocacy director Boris Dittrich: â€śHow they are going to produce the child? They need male and female for that.â€ť
It came after Bakshi had earlier asked a gay Wellington couple "If you get married, who will be identified as husband, and who will be identified as wife?"
Key is in Myanmar, where he has told travelling media Bakshi is a â€śvery traditionalâ€ť and conservative MP and itâ€™s well-known he opposed the bill.
Key says the MP is â€śjust doing his jobâ€ť, as an MP on a select committee, in asking those questions.
