Ruddock review release very soon: Attorney

The government is in the final stages of responding to a review into religious freedoms and will release it very soon, Attorney-General Christian Porter says.

Attorney-General Christian Porter says the federal government is in the final stages of responding to a review into religious freedoms and will release the document "very soon".

Mr Porter said the review, led by former Liberal minister Philip Ruddock, contained complicated issues such as protecting gay teachers at religious schools.

He told ABC radio on Tuesday the government was aiming to balance non-discrimination of LGBTI students and staff against the need for religious schools to organise themselves in accordance with the doctrines of their faith.
