Dementia

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.

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.

Economic and Finance Committee: Inquiry into Local Government rate capping policies

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.

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.
