ASER (RESTRUCTURE) (FACILITATION OF RIVERBANK DEVELOPMENT) AMENDMENT BILL

21 June, 2016

I rise to speak to the ASER (Restructure) (Facilitation of Riverbank Development) Amendment Bill 2016 and, in doing so, confirm from the outset that the opposition does not agree with this bill being progressed at this stage. That is not to say that we object to there being development on the riverbank. Whilst we could extensively discuss what we think may be better aspects of a development, ......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (ELECTRICITY AND GAS) BILL

9 June, 2016

I rise to speak on the Statutes Amendment (Electricity and Gas) Bill 2016 and commend other members for their contributions, particularly the member for Stuart who has outlined a number of matters. I think he has attempted as best as possible to identify where there appear to be important areas of remedy proposed that are acceptable and appropriate, and areas where that is not the case. ...download full article as a pdf

PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE: VETERANS' MENTAL HEALTH PRECINCT TRANSFORMING HEALTH PROJECT

8 June, 2016

I had just opened and identified two areas of potential conflict of interest on the veterans' mental health project, and I had sought leave to continue my remarks. Members will not be surprised when I express my outrage at the government's decision to progress the $15 million veterans' mental health project away from the Repatriation General Hospital at Daw Park, which currently accommodates ......download full article as a pdf

NATURAL RESOURCES COMMITTEE: LEVY PROPOSALS 2016-17

8 June, 2016

I rise to speak on the 109th and 110th regional levies reports in the series of reports we are currently dealing with, that is, in respect of the Adelaide and Mount Lofty levy proposal. Firstly, I am very disappointed that we are dealing with the business plans and levy proposals as some sort of bulk group. We are restricted to 10 minutes to deal with these because they are now all being......download full article as a pdf

NOTARIES PUBLIC BILL

7 June, 2016

I rise to indicate that the opposition will be supporting the Notaries Public Bill 2016. It has been about 12 years in the gestation. The former attorney-general did not want to advance it. The current Attorney-General moved at glacial pace in even considering it. ...download full article as a pdf

JUDICIAL ADMINISTRATION (AUXILIARY APPOINTMENTS AND POWERS) (QUALIFICATION FOR APPOINTMENT) AMENDMENT BILL

7 June, 2016

It is with pleasure that I address the question of the Judicial Administration (Auxiliary Appointments and Powers) (Qualification for Appointment) Amendment Bill 2016. The opposition will not be supporting this bill. It is the view of the opposition that unless a cogent case is put to the parliament to extend the appointments of auxiliary judges in South Australia, and unless that is presente......download full article as a pdf

WOMEN IN PARLIAMENT

26 May, 2016

It is a privilege to rise to speak to this motion and to recognise Dr Jessie Cooper and Mrs Joyce Steele, who of course presides over us here in this chamber in her Versace-blue jacket. In particular, I acknowledge their fight to get representation in the parliament and to have their election legitimised. I am not going to dwell on the contribution of each of these women in the parliament, be......download full article as a pdf

RETIREMENT VILLAGES BILL

24 May, 2016

I rise to speak on the Retirement Villages Bill 2016 and indicate that I will be supporting the bill. I further disclose that I was a chair of the Home and Community Care advisory board for about eight years prior to coming to this place. Accordingly, I have had some interest in assistance to both frail aged and those with a disability in securing alternative and independent accommodation, pa......download full article as a pdf

MAGISTRATES COURT (MONETARY LIMITS) AMENDMENT BILL

18 May, 2016

I rise to speak on the Magistrates Court (Monetary Limits) Amendment Bill 2016 and indicate that the opposition will be supporting the bill. There is a deficiency, and I will address that, but essentially this is a bill to reduce the maximum monetary limit for minor civil matters in the Magistrates Court from $25,000 to $12,000. As is well known, our leader introduced a bill in 2011 to increa......download full article as a pdf

LOCAL NUISANCE AND LITTER CONTROL BILL

18 May, 2016

I rise to speak on the Local Nuisance and Litter Control Bill 2016 and indicate that some concerns have been raised with me about this bill. I will refer to one matter quickly and that is the announcement by the federal government that it is going to fund the research and approval process for the disposal of carp. I welcome that. I thought this was a great initiative. Apparently, it has been ......download full article as a pdf

NUCLEAR FUEL CYCLE ROYAL COMMISSION

18 May, 2016

I rise to speak on the Premier's motion to indicate to the house that the opposition will support this motion and agrees with the government that the appropriate course now to deal with the recommendation, if any recommendation is otherwise taken up by any governments, is that it be done with the social licence to support the same. This is a measure upon which that can be embraced and, approp......download full article as a pdf

BRIGGS, PROF. FREDA

17 May, 2016

It is fitting that this motion is before the house and that we recognise Emeritus Professor Freda Briggs AO on the sad occasion of her passing. Can I say that, whilst our leader and of course the Premier have made a contribution as to the historical work of Freda Briggs both in Britain and here, I had occasion personally to meet with her in the mid-1980s, fresh out of criminal courts, at a ti......download full article as a pdf

SUMMARY OFFENCES (FILMING AND SEXTING OFFENCES) AMENDMENT BILL

17 May, 2016

I rise to speak on the Summary Offences (Filming and Sexting Offences) Amendment Bill 2016 and indicate that the opposition will be supporting this bill. However, I indicate that there will be amendments which I will canvass in the course of the contribution I propose to make. ...download full article as a pdf

REAL PROPERTY (ELECTRONIC CONVEYANCING) AMENDMENT BILL

14 April, 2016

I indicate that I expect to be the only speaker for the opposition and we will be supporting this bill. Briefly, may I say that, of all of the changes, and we are now really at the third stage of legislative change to fulfil the commitments of having a national electronic conveyancing system, one single NEC system for use throughout Australia, I thought that the move in this tranche of reform......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (COMMONWEALTH REGISTERED ENTITIES) BILL

14 April, 2016

I rise to speak on the Statutes Amendment (Commonwealth Registered Entities) Bill 2016, and I suspect I will be the only speaker. I indicate that the opposition have considered the bill and will consent to the same. ...download full article as a pdf
