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

CONSTITUTION (DEMISE OF THE CROWN) AMENDMENT BILL

5 July, 2016

I rise to speak on this bill, and I am almost too frightened to even record the descriptor of this bill for fear that I might be aiding and abetting the offence of treason. ...download full article as a pdf

SUMMARY PROCEDURE (ABOLITION OF COMPLAINTS) AMENDMENT BILL

23 June, 2016

I rise to speak on the Summary Procedure (Abolition of Complaints) Amendment Bill 2016 and indicate that the opposition will be supporting this bill. In the relatively brief time we have had to consult on the matter, we are satisfied that our side has no objection to the terms as outlined. The Law Society have indicated that they take no objection—in particular, the Criminal Law Committ......download full article as a pdf

JUSTICES OF THE PEACE (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

23 June, 2016

I rise to speak on the Justices of the Peace (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2016. This is a bill introduced by the Attorney on 8 June. On face of it, it makes some minor amendments to the Justice of the Peace Act 2005. ...download full article as a pdf

CHEMOTHERAPY TREATMENT ERROR

23 June, 2016

Today, we have heard from the Premier his determination of what happened with Mr Knox in their meeting yesterday. He would have you believe that, although he had not said 'I'm sorry' in just those words, he made it clear to us today that he had connected with Mr Knox, that they obviously had a good conversation and that he had not read the material that had been provided to him by Mr Knox but......download full article as a pdf

Premier Weatherill

22 June, 2016

There were two things premier Rann did in his first year as Premier of South Australia; one was to prepare, call for and convene a drug summit in 2002, and the second was to prepare, call for and allocate the funding to progress with the appointment of Robyn Layton QC to fully investigate and review child protection in South Australia, both of which I personally applauded and which I think ma......download full article as a pdf

RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

22 June, 2016

I rise to speak on the Residential Tenancies (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2016 which, as indicated by the government, proposes to make some relatively minor amendments in respect of right of entry between landlord and tenants, prospective tenants, arrangements to clarify concern as to the termination of tenancy when a property is to be under contract for sale, and what to do with abandoned ......download full article as a pdf
