Liberal MP Craig Laundy says he is comfortable with how racial discrimination laws are now.

A Liberal MP has vowed to stand up for his multicultural electorate when his federal coalition colleagues debate changes to race-hate speech laws.

Craig Laundy, who holds the marginal western Sydney seat of Reid, says he is comfortable with a contentious section of the Racial Discrimination Act despite a likely change that will replace the words "insult" and "offend" with "harass".

"If that is what comes into the party room I will stand up and as I've done for four years, fight for the people of Reid," he told ABC radio ahead of Tuesday's meeting.
