Speeches

 

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

STATUTES AMENDMENT (SOUTH AUSTRALIAN EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNAL) BILL

21 September, 2016

I rise to speak to this bill and indicate that we will be supporting the passage of the bill. We are still consulting with some groups, and we indicate that we may need to reserve our position on any possible amendments in the Legislative Council. The Hon. Rob Lucas has assisted the opposition in advising us on this matter, as he covers industrial relations matters for the opposition. I indic......download full article as a pdf

CRIMINAL LAW CONSOLIDATION (MENTAL IMPAIRMENT) AMENDMENT BILL

21 September, 2016

I speak on behalf of the opposition to deal with the Criminal Law Consolidation (Mental Impairment) Amendment Bill 2016 and indicate that we will be consenting to the bill. This is a bill introduced by the Attorney-General on 4 August 2016 and it substantially amends a division of the Criminal Law Consolidation Act relating to mental competence and touches on provisions under the part coverin......download full article as a pdf

CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

21 September, 2016

I rise to speak on this bill in response to what has been a bevy of glowing support of the intent behind this bill. I am so enthused by this glowing support that I have to say three things. First, this is a bill that actually is done when a premier walks into a cabinet room and says, 'What the hell are we going to do in a few months' time? Find me some tidy-up bills that we can deal with so w......download full article as a pdf

PUBLIC SECTOR (DATA SHARING) BILL

20 September, 2016

I rise to speak on the Public Sector (Data Sharing) Bill 2016, which was introduced by the Attorney-General on 4 August 2016. The bill predated the release and then subsequent disclosure, on 5 and 8 August respectively, of the Nyland royal commission. In short, it frankly has nothing to do with child protection, but in the interests of advancing a piece of legislation so that we are......download full article as a pdf

CHILD PROTECTION

20 September, 2016

Members today would have been sitting in shock to hear the government's response to why they have failed to establish the new child protection department, which they promised on 21 June this year. Commissioner Nyland had announced, in an interim report, her recommendation that this be advanced. The Premier made a clear statement that day to say: ...download full article as a pdf

CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE (OVERSIGHT AND ADVOCACY BODIES) BILL

20 September, 2016

I contribute to this debate by simply adding that, in addition to the opposition supporting the passage of this bill, the Attorney-General has been requested during the course of the public consultation on this bill, of which two drafts have been published by the government online, to provide to the opposition a copy of all submissions prepared and submitted by stakeholders and members of the......download full article as a pdf
