Speeches

 

Labor Government

1 December, 2016

It is the first day of summer and the last day of parliament that we are going to be sitting this year. There may be some surprises coming for the member for Croydon because our corridors are now alive with the rumour that today, when we are planning to pack up our books and leave the chamber for the year, his seat is going to be the receptacle for the new premier. ...download full article as a pdf

Valedictories

1 December, 2016

May I, on indulgence, indicate from the opposition that on these occasions we wish to pay respect to and record our appreciation for those who serve South Australia by working very hard in this parliament. I think there are some 300 people who work directly to support the operation of the parliament and so on these occasions we want to particularly recognise them, and also those who, like us, ......download full article as a pdf

Electoral (Legislative Council Voting) (Voter Choice) Amendment Bill

1 December, 2016

That is not to say that it does not have room for improvement, and the member for Davenport interjected to talk about terms of office and length of time. That may be something that needs to be looked at but, dealing with the issue of harvesting, it seems as though a consideration of the optional preferential models could be explored, and we should explore it....download full article as a pdf

ELECTORAL (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

1 December, 2016

I rise to speak on the Electoral (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2016. The parliament has received and dealt with the Electoral (Funding, Expenditure and Disclosure) Amendment Bill 2016. When I say that it has been dealt with, my understanding is that the bill, which related to the new model of public funding for elections and the associated disclosure and expenditure matters, is following its ......download full article as a pdf

BIOLOGICAL CONTROL (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

17 November, 2016

I rise to speak on the Biological Control (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2016, which essentially makes amendments to our Biological Control Act 1986. Why is this so important? Because the area that has not been canvassed to date by either the proponents of this bill or indeed the opposition's position, as ably presented by the member for Hammond, and taking into account that th......download full article as a pdf

ELECTORAL (FUNDING, EXPENDITURE AND DISCLOSURE)

17 November, 2016

I rise to speak to the Electoral (Funding, Expenditure and Disclosure) Amendment Bill and expect to be the only speaker in the opposition. The matter of substance, namely the Electoral Act, the actual law we are amending, relates to the Electoral (Funding, Expenditure and Disclosure) Amendment Act 2013, the effect of which was to provide for the rules and regulations surroundin......download full article as a pdf

DEFENCE RESERVES MOTION

17 November, 2016

I move: That this house— (a) acknowledges the contribution of the Defence Reserves Support Council (SA), Air Force, Army and Navy reservists and employers of reservists; (b) acknowledges the contribution of Dr Pamela Schulz OAM as the recently retired chair of the council; (c) congratulates Dr Andrew Cannon AM as the new chair of the council; (d) recognises the ......download full article as a pdf

SUMMARY OFFENCES (DISRESPECTFUL CONDUCT IN COURT) AMENDMENT BILL

17 November, 2016

I thank the member for Kaurna for making a contribution and identifying the government's position on this, because clearly it seals the fate of this bill. However, I want to place three things on the record. ...download full article as a pdf

DEATH WITH DIGNITY BILL

16 November, 2016

I rise to speak on the Death with Dignity Bill 2016. Whilst I think it is rather a misnomer of description of what we are about to do, I indicate that unlike all preceding bills in the time I have been in the parliament that have offered this sanction and protection, I will be supporting the second reading. I indicate to you that, whilst the detail has been outlined by a number......download full article as a pdf

BIRTHS, DEATHS AND MARRIAGES (GENDER IDENTITY) AMENDMENT BILL

16 November, 2016

I rise to speak on the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration (Gender Identity) Amendment Bill 2016 and indicate that I will be supporting the same. I wish to raise a matter with respect to 29N, but let me say at the outset that we had the public and parliamentary debate in respect of gender identity and the rules that would apply for legal sexual reassignment back in the 19......download full article as a pdf

RELATIONSHIPS REGISTER BILL

2 November, 2016

I rise to speak on the Relationships Register Bill 2016, introduced by the assistant minister to the Premier on 22 September this year. ...download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (JUDICIAL REGISTRARS) BILL

1 November, 2016

I rise to speak on the Statutes Amendment (Judicial Registrars) Bill 2016 and indicate that I will be proposing amendments which will provide, in the alternative, an option for the government to consider. I also note that the Attorney-General has provided copies of foreshadowed amendments and a summary explanation of them in the last couple of days, and I have reviewed those and will be conse......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (COURTS AND JUSTICE MEASURES) BILL

1 November, 2016

I rise to speak on the Statutes Amendment (Courts and Justice Measures) Bill 2016. This is a bill that was introduced by the Attorney-General in September and claims to make minor amendments to a number of acts, including the Bail Act, the Criminal Law Consolidation Act, the Evidence Act, the Solicitor-General Act, the Summary Procedure Act and the Youth Court Act, amongst others. In summary,......download full article as a pdf

VOLUNTARY EUTHANASIA BILL

20 October, 2016

I rise to speak on the Voluntary Euthanasia Bill, introduced by the member for Ashford. As I have indicated to her, I will not be supporting the bill in this form. However, it is fair to say that with a number of amendments I would be sympathetic to it being advanced. In short, however, the statutory sanction of death by doctor is something which in the present bill is deficient in definition......download full article as a pdf

NATIONAL ELECTRICITY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (AUSTRALIAN ENERGY REGULATOR - WHOLESALE MARKET MONITORING) AMENDMENT BILL

18 October, 2016

I rise to speak on the National Electricity (South Australia) (Australian Energy Regulator—Wholesale Market Monitoring) Amendment Bill 2016. The lead for the opposition has indicated that we will be supporting this bill, together with one to follow. In supporting this bill, I do not accept for one moment that it is going to make a scrap of difference to the price vulnerability that Sout......download full article as a pdf
