Animal Welfare (Live Baiting) Amendment Bill

In Parliament - Thursday, 10 September 2015

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (17:16:47): I rise also to speak in support of this bill. Like many who saw the ABC Four Corners episode 'Making A Killing' back in February of this year, I was deeply troubled by the report and the footage shown. As honourable members are well aware, I was not the only one appalled by what I saw. After the program aired, I received many hundreds of phone calls, emails and letters from my constituents asking for parliament to act to prevent such cruelty to animals. I have no doubt that many other members had a similar experience, and I am glad today that we are finally acting on what we saw on the Four Corners program.

Statutes Amendment and Repeal (Budget 2015) Bill

In Parliament - Tuesday, 8 September 2015

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (16:38:33): I also rise to speak to the Statutes Amendment and Repeal (Budget 2015) Bill and to understand where the 2015 budget is and what the government is trying to do over the next 12 months. I commend them in many areas such as looking at winding back some of the stamp duty provisions and even the Save the River Murray levy which is very honourable, but we need to look at why we are where we are today and how things have come about.

Tertiary Education Sector

In Parliament - Thursday, 30 July 2015

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (15:22:11): The revelation last week that the state government was secretly planning to merge South Australia's universities and TAFE system was disturbing, to say the least. The fact that this government was considering amalgamating the third-oldest university in the country and my alma mater, the University of Adelaide, with University of South Australia was reckless and short-sighted in the extreme.

As a new member of parliament, it was my first experience of estimates and one that I was looking forward to participating in. In my eagerness, I put my hand up to sit on 11 committees.
