Harriet Harman, speaking on the Andrew Marr show, said: "There is a huge question. Is our future as 60 million people outside of Europe on our own, or are we going to be one of those big building blocks."

It is not inconsistent to say that we recognise that our future is better in Europe than outside of Europe but we want to see Europe change, not only for this country, but because all around Europe they have got to address the question of people feeling like Europe is too centralised, insufficiently accountable and insufficiently in touch.

– Acting Labour leader Harriet Harman

"We would be on our own. If we were outside of Europe we would be a small country, outside those big continental building blocks around the globe," Ms Harman added, pointing out that "timing"was key, and the vote must not be at the same time as other important elections.

Australian PM rejects gay marriage referendum proposal

Australia's political leaders on Sunday rejected the idea of a referendum on gay marriage following Ireland's successful vote.

When questioned on Sunday about whether Australia should have a referendum on the issue, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said it's a matter to be resolved in parliament.

Leader of the opposition Bill Shorten also supports a vote in parliament but is pushing for Tony Abbott to allow a conscience vote within his own party.

In 2012 the House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted against legislation that would allow same sex couples to marry.

Forty two MPs voted in support of the bill while 98 voted against.
