Mr DULUK (Davenport) (17:40): I also commend the member for Flinders for bringing this motion. I would like to make a few comments of support and, indeed, recognise the outstanding contribution that KESAB has made to South Australia and especially to our environment. I also congratulate them on their 50th anniversary. The exceptional commitment of many staff and volunteers over five decades has seen KESAB evolve from a humble community-based anti-litter campaign to an international player in environmental management.Read more
Mr DULUK (Davenport) (15:24): Dementia remains one of the biggest global public health challenges facing this generation and, whilst dementia may affect us at any age, its prevalence certainly increases later in life, meaning that the rapid ageing of our population is leading to an equally rapid increase in the number of people with dementia. Dementia is already the second leading cause of death in Australia, and there is no cure.Read more

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (11:38): I also rise today to add my comments in support of the minority report on the rate capping inquiry and, of course, to make a contribution on that. In recent years, I believe that we have seen an unhealthy habit develop within local government, and that is to impose annual rate increases well above CPI and the Local Government Price Index on ratepayers.Read more
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.
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.Read more

Mr DULUK ( Davenport ) ( 15:22 ): Today, I rise to reflect on the life of a remarkable woman who had a love of nature and a passion to preserve it. Enid Lucy Robertson AM was born in 1925 and lived in Blackwood until her marriage in 1948. In 1966, Enid returned with her four children to Blackwood after the death of her husband, Dr Stirling Robertson.Read more
