Speeches

 

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

STATUTES AMENDMENT (BUDGET 2016) BILL

4 August, 2016

I rise to speak on the Statutes Amendment (Budget 2016) Bill and indicate that the opposition will be consenting to this bill, consistent with precedent. It is a budget bill and, consistent with precedent, budget bills are not challenged in the normal manner of ordinary statutes. This is largely because of the precedent to recognise that the government has responsibility to make the ultimate ......download full article as a pdf

APPROPRIATION BILL 2016

4 August, 2016

Deputy Speaker, I firstly acknowledge your role in the estimates proceedings that we have recently undertaken and thank you for your contribution, together with the member for Little Para, whom I was able to have as chair in a number of meetings during the estimates being convened and who did a stellar job. I also thank those ministers who presented to estimates and the number of advisers and......download full article as a pdf

APPROPRIATION BILL 2016

26 July, 2016

Here we are, at the 2016 budget, the Appropriation Bill, to accommodate the announcements by the Treasurer, and I remind members that it is a budget that has been approved by cabinet. No-one should underestimate the significance of that because the whole of the cabinet has endorsed the plan of action in respect of the expenditure of $18 billion of South Australians' money to the application o......download full article as a pdf

SUMMARY OFFENCES (DISRESPECTFUL CONDUCT IN COURT) AMENDMENT BILL

7 July, 2016

Courts are a fundamental part of our society and our system of government. Certainly, we rely on them to enforce our laws, to adjudicate individuals' disputes and most importantly to deliver justice and uphold the rule of law. The traditions and revered rule of the courts are such that the community expects that certain levels of behaviour should be adhered to in a courtroom. ...download full article as a pdf

PUBLIC INTOXICATION (REVIEW RECOMMENDATIONS) AMENDMENT BILL

6 July, 2016

I rise to speak on the Public Intoxication (Review Recommendations) Amendment Bill 2016. I will not traverse the comprehensive matters covered by the member for Morphett, who is our representative covering health matters in this place. I am impressed to have heard the contribution of the member for Davenport because he does certainly look at the matter more broadly. I want to raise two things......download full article as a pdf

INDEPENDENT COMMISSIONER AGAINST CORRUPTION (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

6 July, 2016

The Independent Commissioner Against Corruption Act 2012 has now been in effective operation for some three years, and the commissioner appointed is Mr Bruce Lander QC, who has been the one and only commissioner pursuant to that legislation. As a state, we are better off in the protection of having an ICAC. It was a long time coming. It was introduced finally by this government after many yea......download full article as a pdf

INTERVENTION ORDERS (PREVENTION OF ABUSE) (RECOGNITION OF NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ORDERS) AMENDMENT BILL

5 July, 2016

I indicate that I will be the lead speaker on Intervention Orders (Prevention of Abuse) (Recognition of National Domestic Violence Orders) Amendment Bill 2016. Members will be aware that we have, through the Intervention Orders (Prevention of Abuse) Act 2009, as a parliament, rewritten the domestic violence order procedures in this state subsequent to a comprehensive report prepared by Maurin......download full article as a pdf

SUMMARY OFFENCES (DECLARED PUBLIC PRECINCTS) AMENDMENT BILL

5 July, 2016

I rise to speak on the Summary Offences (Declared Public Precincts) Amendment Bill 2016 and indicate that the opposition has considered the bill and we are supportive of the advancement of the two initiatives in this bill. ...download full article as a pdf

LEGAL PRACTITIONERS (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

5 July, 2016

I indicate that the opposition has considered the Legal Practitioners (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2016 and that we will support the passage of this bill. Essentially, it is to do two things; one is to remedy what I think could be described as an omission in drafting the previous bill, resulting in an unintended consequence, in any event, namely, to facilitate the allowance of incorporated ......download full article as a pdf
