Speeches in Parliament
Over the last five years, I have seen this Labor government deliver in my electorate of Kingston. We have seen this Labor government deliver many services on the ground in my local area, services that were desperately needed and indeed many infrastructure projects that have also been desperately needed for many years Read More.
I am very, very pleased to stand and speak on Appropriation Bill (No.3) 2012-2013, because it gives me an opportunity to speak about the economy and how the work that the government is doing, when it comes to managing the economy, is very positively affecting people in my electorate of Kingston Read More.
on behalf of the Standing Committee on Education and Employment, I present the committee's report incorporating a dissenting report entitled Workplace Bullying: W e just want it to stop, together with the minutes and proceedings and evidence receiving by the committee. As you can see it is quite extensive.
I would like to raise a local issue which is very important to my electorate of Kingston and about which people have a lot of concern, and that is future of the former ExxonMobil refinery site at Port Stanvac. ExxonMobil is exiting this site and has indicated that, as part of this process, they may demolish the jetty unless another party takes responsibility for its ongoing maintenance. I believe that this would be a very disappointing option...
I am pleased to rise today to speak about a great organisation in my electorate, TS Noarlunga, a Navy cadet unit that meets in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. In particular, I wish to recognise their most recent accomplishment of a training ship which received the Australian Navy Cadets Most Efficient Training Ship Navy League of Australia Award 2012. This is a very prestigious award, and I would like to congratulate them sincerely.
