Radiation Protection and Control Bill

Second Reading

I rise to speak on the Radiation Protection and Control Bill 2019, and I start by commending the minister for supervising and initiating the enormous body of work that is necessary to undertake a review of legislation by the advance of this bill, which will significantly update and modernise the Radiation Protection and Control Act. It is an exercise that has not been undertaken since 1982, and clearly the world has changed; in fact, there are even a few people in our parliament who were born after that, including the minister. I think it is a commendable achievement. Even before he was a sparkle in his mother's eye, this project was being worked on. That is to be commended.

Linnett, Mr L.

Grievance Debate        

I rise to remember and pay tribute to the life of Mr Leon Linnett. Today, I send our condolences to Mrs Linnett and two of their children, Adam and Kate, who still live on Kangaroo Island. Mr Linnett was a giant not only in the development of tourism in South Australia and in particular on Kangaroo Island, but also in his contribution to the hospitality industry generally. He was a pioneer in luxury accommodation at American River on Kangaroo Island with the Linnett's luxury resort. It has had various titles, but it was an enduring accommodation institution in this state.
