Speeches

 

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

LIMITATION OF ACTIONS (INSTITUTIONAL CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE) AMENDMENT BILL

29 September, 2016

The background to the presentation of this bill for the parliament to consider is the investigations that occurred in the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, Redress and Civil Litigation report. Members would be aware that this has been a national inquiry. ...download full article as a pdf

CHILDREN'S PROTECTION (GUARDIANSHIP) AMENDMENT BILL

29 September, 2016

I introduce the Children's Protection (Guardianship) Amendment Bill 2016. This is a bill to amend the Children's Protection Act 1993. Again, this is a bill that we, on this side of the house, say ought to be uncontroversial and ought to be advanced now, not at the end of the year, not whenever the government thinks it might be opportune to announce and not next year. Now. ...download full article as a pdf

CHILDREN'S PROTECTION (INFORMATION SHARING) AMENDMENT BILL

29 September, 2016

I move: That this bill be now read a second time. In introducing this bill—the Children's Protection (Information Sharing) Amendment Bill 2016—I inform members that the genesis of the amendments to the Children's Protection Act 1993 emanates from the Nyland royal commission. In particular, Commissioner Nyland recommended at 242 that the Children's Protection Act 1993 ......download full article as a pdf

POLICE COMPLAINTS AND DISCIPLINE BILL

27 September, 2016

I rise to speak on the Police Complaints and Discipline Bill 2016. Again, this is a bill that has been introduced subsequent to substantial investigation and inquiry and lengthy recommendations presented for consideration in reviewing the manner in which we deal with police complaints. The gestation period of review is so long I can hardly remember when it started, but I will endeavour to fin......download full article as a pdf

PUBLIC INTEREST DISCLOSURE BILL

27 September, 2016

I rise to speak on the Public Interest Disclosure Bill 2016, introduced by the government subsequent to the opposition giving notice of its Whistleblowers Protection (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2016, and I indicate that we will be supporting the bill. As I have previously indicated, we will move an amendment consistent with the provisions of the protection to journalists in the disclosure ......download full article as a pdf

CHILD SAFETY (PROHIBITED PERSONS) BILL

27 September, 2016

I rise to speak on the Child Safety (Prohibited Persons) Bill 2016 and indicate that I will be consenting to the bill. Largely, this is a bill to remedy a working with children model which exists in South Australia but which has failed to be as robust as is necessary. The opposition agrees that it needs to be tightened. The measures to improve checks on people working with children are incorp......download full article as a pdf

CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES (YOUTH TREATMENT ORDERS) AMENDMENT BILL

22 September, 2016

I introduce this bill today for an act to amend the Controlled Substances Act 1984, essentially to make provision for drug treatment orders without consent for children. 'Children' in the bill are defined as those under the age of 18 years. In short, the bill will amend our Controlled Substances Act which, as members know, is legislation providing for the prohibition where necessary of produc......download full article as a pdf

BIRTHS, DEATHS AND MARRIAGES (GENDER IDENTITY) AMENDMENT BILL

21 September, 2016

I rise to speak on the Births, Deaths and Marriages (Gender Identity) Amendment Bill 2016, and indicate that the opposition has not formed a party position on this bill. In reference to what is colloquially often known as the members having a 'conscience vote', of course, on our side of the house every vote is a conscience vote. Frequently, we meet to form a joint party position on something ......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (SACAT) AMENDMENT BILL

21 September, 2016

The opposition will support the Statutes Amendment (SACAT) Amendment Bill 2016, as it is consequentially necessary to deal with the outcome of the bill we have just passed. On the assumption that that follows its normal passage, this is required. Can I say, however, how deeply disappointed I am that, when opening the SACAT bill, we are not transferring the next trove of jurisdictions that the......download full article as a pdf
