Liquor Licensing (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill

Second Reading

I thank the member for Kaurna as the opposition spokesperson, and the members for Hammond, Florey and Waite for their contributions. I am always entertained by the member for Hammond's contribution. Can I say that I was recently in his electorate attending the opening of the racecourse. I think they could now bet on just about anything in his electorate they have so many different venues. It is a magnificent facility, and I commend him for his tireless advocacy to bring industry to his electorate.

Johns, Mr M.

Grievance

I rise to pay tribute to a man who has served South Australians as our state Coroner for nearly 15 years, Mr Mark Johns. It is timely that I do so, as his replacement has now commenced in the role, and I note the Legislative Council is planning its own motion tomorrow to recognise Mr Johns' service.

Retail and Commercial Leases (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill

Second Reading

I would like to thank the representative of the opposition as well as the members for Florey and Hammond for their contributions.

In respect of the matters raised by the member for Florey and the question of the constituent's concern about section 5, and I tried to note it as quickly as I could, it sounds remarkably like a matter that was raised with me in consultation. There is an answer in relation to that, and I will make sure that is provided to the house, as it has been raised in the house, but also to the member for Florey. If there is ancillary documentation around this submission by the constituent, if it has been sent to my office this morning, then I am happy to have a look at it.
