Coalition Senator Dean Smith has defended his co-sponsoring of a bill to change to Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act.

Yesterday, Family First Senator Bob Day introduced a bill in the Senate to remove provisions from the Act, including the words 'offend' and 'insult'.

Labor has accused the bill's supporters of fanning prejudice in Australia.

Senator Smith says the proposed changes aren't a radical move.
