I rise to make a brief contribution on this and not to go over the ground that other speakers have gone over except to say congratulations to the Women in Agriculture and Business on their 100-year anniversary. A woman in my office by the name of
Courtney is a local of Saddleworth and Riverton and knows all things that go on over there and has been talking to me quite a bit about the work that these people do in her local community.
I rise also to wish the Crows well on the weekend. I have my scarf here ready to go and I look forward to sitting down with my five-year-old nephew as he hosts us and the rest of the family for the Crows game on Saturday afternoon. I hope for all of South Australia's sake, but especially his sake, that the Crows get up on the weekend. We have been trying to counsel him to make sure that he can withstand a potential loss, not that that is what we are considering.Read more
I rise this afternoon to give a grievance on the Supply Bill as it relates to the unsurpassed electorate of Schubert. We may not have coastline—we may have, though, a dam that becomes open for non-motorised recreational boating and fishing activities in the Warren Reservoir, and I am looking forward to seeing that happen. The absence of coastline is more than abundantly made up by some extremely picturesque scenery and the best shiraz, riesling and semillon in the known world.Read more
Mr KNOLL ( Schubert ) ( 15:44 ): I rise today to talk on the Pinery fire that affected parts of my electorate last week. At the start, I would like to acknowledge and briefly mention Janet Hughes and Allan Tiller, the two members of our community who lost their lives last week. Interestingly, both of them were moving in vehicles around the fire, and it does seem that there was a great risk for those people who were in transition during that fire period when it was coming over.Read more
This issue of people leaving South Australia is quite personal for me.
I commend the member for Chaffey for bringing this issue to the house. It is an issue that is very close to my heart. I am technically a member of the gen Y generation. I probably act a little more generation X in getting married and buying my
first home at quite a young age but still those around me are very much gen Y.
I rise today to speak about the Children's Protection (Implementation of Coroner's Recommendations) Amendment Bill because it is something that, as a new father, has struck a chord.Read more
A number of factors within the peri-urban areas of South Australia have led to an increase in disputes between landholders of different land uses. As a result of this, Stephan Knoll MP, Member for Schubert, is seeking to introduce a Private Members Bill which will provide a low cost, informal mechanism to mediate these disputes.Read more
