Local Government (Mobile Food Vendors) Amendment Bill

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (12:53): I was wondering about the genesis of this proposed legislation. Where did it come from? Then I looked at the member for Kaurna who is sitting in the Premier's seat—and he wants to be the Premier. This is his audition to caucus that he has a brilliant idea.

Volunteer Services

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (15:31): I rise today to recognise the work of the many volunteers who assisted residents and the community on 14 September, when we experienced one of the wettest September days on record. In the Mitcham Hills, creeks were flowing fast, hard enough to damage bridges and walkways in Coromandel Valley and cause serious flooding in the Brownhill Creek area. Reserves and streets were flooded, and houses were damaged in Mitcham.

Grieve - Appropriation Bill 2016 (Davenport)

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (16:38): Since the Treasurer delivered his budget on 7 July, my office has been contacted by quite a few constituents. I can tell you that not one has phoned, emailed or visited my office to sing the praises of the Treasurer's budget. No-one has said that it is an excellent budget, no-one has even said it is a good budget. What they have told me is that they are very disappointed. They are frustrated and they are very angry. They are frustrated by the government's unwavering commitment to Transforming Health, despite growing protests from medical professionals, staff and patients, as well as budget blowouts and despicable waste, including $3 million of taxpayers' money the government spent spruiking its changes to the health system.

Suicide

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (15:42): I rise today on a sombre note to discuss data
released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in March this year on the causes of
death in Australia in 2014. It is with alarm and sadness that I note the tragically high
rate of suicide in this country, in particular in South Australia, by the numbers. In
2014, there were 2,864 suicides nationally. That is almost eight per day—one every
three hours. In South Australia, there were 240 suicides in just 12 months. That
means that every 1.5 days someone in South Australia takes their own life.
