CRIMINAL LAW CONSOLIDATION (SEXUAL OFFENCES - COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT) AMENDMENT BILL

18 November, 2014

I rise to speak on the Criminal Law Consolidation (Sexual Offences—Cognitive Impairment) Amendment Bill 2014. This is a bill introduced by the Attorney on 29 October this year, and I think it is fair to say that it has had quite a long gestation period in its development. I indicate that the opposition will be supporting the bill. ...download full article as a pdf

EVIDENCE (PROTECTIONS FOR JOURNALISTS) AMENDMENT BILL

30 October, 2014

It is with pleasure that I stand to introduce this bill today. It is the culmination of an extraordinary amount of work that has been undertaken, and I pay tribute to the Hon. Stephen Wade in another place. During 2013, in particular, we on this side of politics felt it was such an important issue, such a significant area of public policy, that we went to the 2014 election with a commitment to pro......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S PORTFOLIO) BILL

29 October, 2014

I have acknowledged that in the Magistrates Court Act section 7(2) makes provision for the process that is to prevail in the event that the Chief Magistrate is absent from his or her duties, namely the provision for the Deputy Chief Magistrate to assume those duties of office. I had left this previous debate on the basis that there is specific provision in the Magistrates Court Act for dealing wit......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S PORTFOLIO) BILL

28 October, 2014

I rise to speak on the Statutes Amendment (Attorney-General's Portfolio) Bill 2014. This bill was introduced by the Attorney on 23 September 2014 and, as he stated in his contribution to the parliament, it is to remedy 'minor errors, omissions and other deficiencies' as identified in various acts. Usually, when I see words such as those it sets off alarm bells and they usually deserve of further i......download full article as a pdf

DOMESTIC AND FAMILY VIOLENCE

15 October, 2014

I rise to indicate my support for the motion as amended by the member for Morialta. I thank the member for Reynell for bringing this matter to the attention of the parliament because it is appropriate that there be regular reviews. The Social Development Committee is the standing committee that should be dealing with this matter and continuing to identify in our community, and within the services ......download full article as a pdf

CRIMINAL LAW (FORENSIC PROCEDURES) (BLOOD TESTING FOR DISEASES) AMENDMENT BILL

14 October, 2014

I rise to speak as the lead speaker on this matter for the opposition and indicate that we will be supporting this bill. However, we are of the view that, in essence, the relief which is being offered under this bill to the members of the South Australian police force ought also be available to other persons who work in emergency services circumstances, and I will come to the detail of that shortl......download full article as a pdf

I rise to support the member for Stuart's motion, and I thank him for bringing it to the chamber. It recognises National Police Remembrance Day and the value of the work of our South Australian policemen and policewomen, and expresses gratitude for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the course of their duties. May I particularly acknowledge today one who has a continuing memorial in my......download full article as a pdf

I rise to speak on the South Australian Employment Tribunal Bill 2014 introduced by the Attorney on 6 August 2014. It is a bill proposing the establishment of a tribunal with jurisdiction to review certain decisions that will arise from the return-to-work scheme, which is a new scheme to be established with the passage of the preceding bill.

RETURN TO WORK BILL

23 September, 2014

I speak on the Return to Work Bill 2014 introduced by the Attorney-General on 6 August 2014. First, I indicate my concern that we are back here again for all the reasons that the leader (our lead speaker) has outlined: the desperate circumstances of our workers compensation in South Australia because of the government's mismanagement of this area of responsibility. It has been repeated, it has con......download full article as a pdf

MINISTER FOR EDUCATION AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT

7 August, 2014

I rise to support the motion of no confidence in the Minister for Education. The minister is the legal guardian of some 2,800 children and is responsible for the care and protection of all children in South Australia. Let us be absolutely clear, from this side of the house, that we accept the minister is not responsible for the unspeakable actions of people who commit crimes against children.
