Speeches

 

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

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
