PLANNING, DEVELOPMENT AND INFRASTRUCTURE (RESTRICTED DEVELOPMENT) AMENDMENT BILL

I rise to speak against the Planning, Development and Infrastructure (Restricted Development) Amendment Bill 2020. As members in the chamber would be aware, since entering government in 2018 the Marshall Liberal team has been working very hard, together with the members in the department and the Planning Commission, to implement the planning reforms commenced by legislation of this parliament in 2016, and to facilitate the establishment of regulation, design codes and generally a new regime to ultimately conclude with our Development Act being completely repealed and a new regime coming into effect.

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNAL (COSTS) AMENDMENT BILL

Today, I introduce a short but important bill to amend the South Australian Employment Tribunal Act 2014. The amendments proposed in this bill would confirm that the South Australian Employment Tribunal (SAET) has the power to award costs to the parties in criminal proceedings. The bill would backdate this provision to 1 July 2017, which is when SAET was first conferred criminal jurisdiction over industrial offences that had previously been heard in the Magistrates Court. These are mainly offences under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 and the Return to Work Act 2014.

COVID-19 EMERGENCY RESPONSE (EXPIRY) AMENDMENT BILL

I am pleased to introduce the COVID-19 Emergency Response (Expiry) Amendment Bill 2021. Measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 are fundamental to our ongoing response and keeping our community safe.

The declaration of major emergency, in place since 22 March 2020, provides the authorising context for the important social distancing and public health measures issued by the State Coordinator through directions. I thank all South Australians for their ongoing cooperation with these directions and indeed their care and respect for others in the community with their compliance. Clearly, it helps to keep South Australians safe and strong.
