Federal Election 2019

Mr DULUK (Waite) (15:33): I suppose politics in Australia has always been played pretty hard for many years, both at a South Australian level and across the nation. However, it concerns me that in recent years the tone, especially around election campaigns, has changed. Several instances certainly come to mind, and one is the infamous campaign in Mawson about putting your family first.

Repatriation General Hospital

Mr DULUK (Waite) (15:34): Today, I rise to spread the good news about the reactivation of the Repat, which was launched this morning. Sir, you would remember, as so many on this side of the house do, when the Repat closed under the Labor government back in 2017. It was a disgraceful day in the history of public health in South Australia. The Labor Party still closed the Repat even though veterans slept on the steps of parliament for 161 nights. To protest the closing of the Repat, 120,000 signatures were presented to this parliament, but the Labor government, through trashing our state health system, still closed the Repat. That was despite former premier Mike Rann saying that the Labor Party would never, ever close the Repat.
