AAP logoAAP 3/08/2016

Malcolm Turnbull will meet with Bill Shorten on Thursday to discuss the referendum to recognise indigenous people in the Australian constitution.

The prime minister said the government was committed to the change but he acknowledged it would only be successful if the final proposal was bipartisan and worded in an uncontroversial way.

"We have to be satisfied that the language meets the purpose and of course is capable of winning support in the referendum ... but we are committed to doing it," Mr Turnbull told reporters in Canberra on Wednesday.
