Mr DULUK (Davenport) (12:41): It will be no surprise to those on this side of the house that
I support the motion. What I have found intriguing is every contribution so far from the Labor Party: the Premier, the Treasurer, the member for Lee, the Deputy Premier, and of course the member for Kaurna, who is auditioning for the Treasurer's role for after the next election. The opposition benches we were all given a history lesson, and this history lesson is going on and on and is full of inaccuracies.
Mr DULUK (Davenport) (16:29): I would also like to make a contribution on the rail safety national law bill and put on the record that we on this side of the house support the bill. I want to make a few comments on South Australian rail transport and rail infrastructure because, for those who know, they are huge parts of the electorates of Davenport, Waite and Elder and the surrounding areas of the Mitcham Hills.Read more

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (15:27): A very good on-baller, I would have thought, member for
Torrens. I rise today to talk about the enormous potential of our wonderful state; potential that desperately needs to be unlocked. To unlock that potential, South Australia needs a government that is able to lift its gaze beyond the horizon and envisage the South Australia of tomorrow.
Mr DULUK (Davenport) (12:32): I move:
That this house—
(a) recognises that today is the 75th anniversary of the 1942 Bangka Strait massacre;
(b) honours the memory of Australian nurses killed in the Bangka Strait massacre; and
(c) commends the SA Women's Memorial Playing Field Trust for their ongoing commitment to the annual Bangka Day Memorial Service.

Mr DULUK (Davenport) (17:04): Can I echo the words of the Member for Morialta. What the state government is doing in regard to private instrumental tuition in government schools is an absolute disgrace and a shame. It is extremely short-sighted and it is going to be to the detriment of young children and those at school who want to continue to have private music tuition. This is not a case of needing or having private instrumental teachers going into public schools at the expense of The Instrumental Music Service.Read more
Mr DULUK (Davenport) (12:43): I move:
That this house urges the Weatherill Labor government to prioritise the upgrade of road maintenance and
transport systems through the Mitcham Hills, prioritising Main Road and the Blackwood roundabout, in order
(a) improve traffic congestion for residents living in the Mitcham Hills and Southern suburbs;
(b) provide efficient access for emergency services vehicles;
(c) improve traffic management in an emergency event;
(d) create a safer environment for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians; and
(e) meet the population growth needs of Mitcham Hills and the surrounding areas.
Mr DULUK (Davenport) (15:52): I also rise to speak on the Adoption (Review) Amendment
Bill 2016. I will make a very small contribution. The path to the legislation before the house has been
a long, emotional and, in many cases, painful journey for the many people who underwent adoption
in the pre-1988 era of closed adoption practice. I have no doubt that when the original legislation was
debated, and subsequently enacted by parliament, it was done with the very best of intentions for
the children who would undergo adoption, for the parents who would surrender their children and for
the families who would welcome those children into their homes.
