Speeches

 

MINISTER FOR HEALTH

14 April, 2016

I rise to speak on this motion. The most disturbing contribution from the Premier to date is to assert to this house that his minister, in whom he claims he has confidence, has been courageous and brave, has acted with integrity over the last three years, and has overseen his department with confidence. ...download full article as a pdf

LOCAL GOVERNMENT (STORMWATER MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT) AMENDMENT BILL

13 April, 2016

It is with great pleasure that I stand to speak on the Local Government (Stormwater Management Agreement) Amendment Bill 2016. The opposition's position is that we will be supporting the bill. One of the most significant issues to be dealt with by the stormwater management teams is to sort out who is going to be responsible for the pipes and sewerage under the ground in metropolitan Adelaide.......download full article as a pdf

CORPORATIONS (COMMONWEALTH POWERS) (TERMINATION DAY) AMENDMENT BILL

13 April, 2016

I indicate that the opposition will be supporting this bill but, as I say, it is to extend the corporations scheme, which commenced back on 15 July 2001, for a further five years. The expiry is due on 15 July 2016 and, accordingly, the government is progressing the bill at this time. In short, whilst the opposition is supporting the bill, it is of some concern to me—and I think ought to......download full article as a pdf

HEALTH SERVICES

12 April, 2016

Members will remember the Mr. Men series of children's books. They were tiny books and they had a series of people in cartoon form. You had Mr Funny, Mr Fat, Mr Fast, etc., and they were entertaining stories for children. There was a little round blue one which had bandages all over him. I cannot remember whether he was called Mr Bump, or Mr Hapless, or Mr Useless, or something, but he was ro......download full article as a pdf

SUPPLY BILL 2016

12 April, 2016

I rise to speak on the Supply Bill 2016, introduced, as we do each year, preceding the announcement of the state government's budget proposals and the consequential bills for the allocation of moneys for government. We do this because we need to continue the expenditure for the government and its employees pending the Appropriation Bill 2016 receiving assent. In this bill, $3.444 billion, or ......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (CHILD MARRIAGE) BILL

24 March, 2016

I rise to support the member for Adelaide's bill, which is essentially to enable a court to make orders to protect a child on reasonable grounds if it suspects that a child or children are to be removed from the state to be coerced into a child marriage. Essentially, this would prevent a party or parties from taking the child from the state, the child's passport could be held and, where appro......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S PORTFOLIO) BILL

23 March, 2016

The government introduced this bill on 24 February indicating that it was to deal with 'minor errors, omissions and other technical deficiencies in legislation', and it is fair to say that after having the briefing with representatives from the Attorney-General's Department and, indeed, the minister's office, that for a substantial part of this bill, that is exactly so. I also had sought some......download full article as a pdf

LEGAL SERVICES COMMISSION (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

22 March, 2016

I rise to speak on the Legal Services Commission (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2016, and indicate that the opposition will be supporting the passage of this bill. ...download full article as a pdf

NUCLEAR WASTE STORAGE FACILITY (PROHIBITION) (PUBLIC MONEY) AMENDMENT BILL

22 March, 2016

I endorse the reasons outlined by the shadow minister, very adeptly and ably, and I agree to support the passage of the bill through this house, with the reservations he has outlined. I also agree that it has been very important for the government to have this inquiry. I still do not know why it had to be under the Royal Commissions Act, and cost now $9 million, but nevertheless it is no......download full article as a pdf

ABORIGINAL HERITAGE (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

22 March, 2016

I thank the shadow minister for his contribution and consideration and advice to the opposition on this matter, and confirm his indication to support the bill. However, I will have a number of questions in committee, and I also place on the record my support for and appreciation of the shadow minister's moving of three amendments. I am not quite sure of the third, frankly. No cost orders is n......download full article as a pdf

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

10 March, 2016

I rise to speak on the Emergency Management (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill and note the government's bringing of this bill after a period of extensive consultation; and, obviously, having conducted the review. I also commend our representative and lead speaker for his contribution to the development of ensuring that our emergency management is the best it can be. ...download full article as a pdf

OCCUPATIONAL LICENSING NATIONAL LAW (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) REPEAL BILL

25 February, 2016

Industries relevant to this bill welcomed the initiative of the new prime minister, Tony Abbott, and his commitment to turn around this situation and at the COAG meeting on 13 December 2013, with the support of COAG, resolved to dismantle this national scheme and get rid of this ridiculous idea that had emanated from the Rudd administration. ...download full article as a pdf

HEALTH REVIEW

25 February, 2016

I rise to speak on this motion with pride but with sadness. There is an old saying in politics: you have different friends on different days for different reasons. To now today speak on the demise of health services in the western suburbs of South Australia and to be standing arm in arm with my good friend, the former Labor member for part of the western districts, Kevin Hamilton OAM and his ......download full article as a pdf

STATUTES AMENDMENT (GENDER IDENTITY AND EQUITY) BILL

24 February, 2016

It is with pleasure that I rise to speak on the Statutes Amendment (Gender Identity and Equity) Bill 2016. I indicate that I will be the lead speaker for the opposition, although that would seem a little unusual, given that I confirm that the opposition does not have a joint party position on this paper, and indeed all members will be, as they are always on our side of the house, encouraged t......download full article as a pdf

OCCUPATIONAL LICENSING NATIONAL LAW (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) REPEAL BILL

24 February, 2016

I rise to speak on the Occupational Licensing National Law (South Australia) Repeal Bill 2016 which will be supported by the opposition, and indicate that I will be the lead speaker. ...download full article as a pdf
