On 21 July 2020, I tabled an amendment to the Emergency Management Act 2004 to allow travel into or out of the State where the travel is for the purpose of escaping domestic violence or providing support to a family member who is experiencing domestic violence, or is otherwise reasonably necessary for the purpose of dealing with circumstances arising out of domestic violence.

Duluk: It was a really good meeting and a big thanks to John and his organisation the South Australian Transport Action Group for putting together the forum and it was a two part forum, a very big focus on local transport needs for the Mount Barker community and then more broadly discussions around freight movement across South Australia and for my community in Waite rail freight has a huge impact on our community and also the lower end of the freeway and what is the future of Cross Road as a freight corridor and something that I’m very concerned about as is my community is the plan to make Cross Road a new freight corridor for the north south tunnels and that is on the agenda of Infrastructure Australia so what I’d like to see is ensuring there is a plan to have a road freight bypass that takes trucks off the freeway that don’t need to be on the freeway, freight is so important to South Australians and there’s always going to be an element of freight haulage on the freeway that travel short distances but for that traffic that doesn’t need to come down the freeway if you can go round the back of the Adelaide Hills through Truro and down to the port that way that is a huge and much needed investment into long term planning for a freight solution and that will see less trucks on the freeway and make that commute for Mount Barker residents so much easier.Read more

Mr DULUK (Waite) (17:55): I also rise today to support the passage of this budget through the house. I actually think overall it is a pretty good budget and there are some fantastic announcements in this package. Before I go on, though, I would like to thank the Treasurer, the Hon. Rob Lucas in the other place, for his service to the parliament and indeed to the people of South Australia over many years. I put on the record that he has been a member of parliament longer than I have been alive. For many years, he has been a good servant, and I think this budget is a fine document for his last public document.
After reviewing the budget papers, it is good to see, as other members have mentioned, improvements to our health system, a plan to fix our roads and moves to address freight issues. Very important to my community is the restoration of our natural environment, funding for schools and community groups and reducing the cost of living for families and business.
Indeed, we are a small business state. In all our budgets and everything we do, we should look after those who are here, day in day out, providing jobs for so many South Australians, and that is the small business community of South Australia. Everything that we can do in all our endeavours in this place and as a government to support small business, to allow them to be open, to be free, to flourish, is so important.Read more
Mr DULUK (Waite) (14:43): A supplementary to the Minister in regard to Sports Vouchers: with the extension of this Sports Vouchers Scheme to Year 8 and 9 students, did the Minister contemplate extending that to Scouts and Girl Guides participants? If not, why not?Read more
