ROMAN CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE OF ADELAIDE CHARITABLE TRUST (MEMBERSHIP OF TRUST) AMENDMENT BILL
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (12:09): I wish to inform this place that I am not the lead speaker on this bill.
NORWOOD FOOTBALL CLUB
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (17:32): I rise to congratulate the Norwood Football Club on their back to back to back (three) premierships in a row at the weekend. By the way, the hearts of many on this side of the house beat true for the red and the blue, including but not limited to the member for Dunstan, the member for Flinders, the member for Morialta and, in the other place, the Hon. John Dawkins.
LOCAL GOVERNMENT (GOVERNANCE) AMENDMENT BILL
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (16:57): I rise to also support the bill and the amendments in question. I would like to commence by firstly acknowledging, as the member for Goyder has done, the good work that local government and local councils especially do in the community. They do a fantastic job in my area. I have three councils in Hartley: the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters (which is my old council), as well as the Burnside council and the Campbelltown council.
NATIONAL POLICE REMEMBRANCE DAY
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (12:46): I rise to speak in favour of the motion and commend the member for Stuart for initiating it. I have an enormous amount of respect for the police not only on the front line but also in the important other roles they play—in Neighbourhood Watch, for example, in keeping our community areas safe and informed. As we have heard, National Police Remembrance Day on 29 September will see the day on which South Australia Police stop to honour its officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. This is one of the most significant days on the policing calendar.
East Marden Primary School
Mr TARZIA ( Hartley ) ( 15:32 :35 ): We saw yesterday how the government abandoned the people of Hartley, breaking their pre-election promise to upgrade the Paradise Interchange and build a park-and-ride facility. Today I draw the house's attention to another abandonment in the area of Hartley in regard to East Marden Primary School. This is a school in my electorate which has over 650 students.
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNAL BILL Second Reading
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (16:41): I also rise to support this bill. As we have heard, the opposition will support it in this place and reserve its right in the other place. I note it is a thin bill. A thin bill is a good bill. It is much thinner than the other bill we had to read a few weeks ago which accompanies this bill. No doubt, in future years to come, it will be seen as a crucial part of the Enfield enlightenment, as the member for Schubert has pointed out.
RETURN TO WORK BILL
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (17:25): I rise today to support the Return to Work Bill. I thank the member for Davenport for his extremely valuable contribution. As we have heard today, we will cooperate with the government in regard to this bill and support its passage through this place. As we have heard, there are some things that governments do well and there are other things that governments do not do well, and this is something that this government has not done particularly well whatsoever.
PASTORAL LAND MANAGEMENT AND CONSERVATION (RENEWABLE ENERGY) AMENDMENT BILL Second Reading
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (17:32): I also speak in support of this bill and commend the bill to the house. I would like to firstly acknowledge the enormous contribution of the Hon. Michelle Lensink in the other place, the member for Stuart and the member for Flinders, and acknowledge the enormous impact that such a bill has on their electorates, having many pastoral leases in their electorates.
AUSTRALIAN CRIME COMMISSION (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (EXAMINATIONS) AMENDMENT BILL Second Reading
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (16:47): I speak in favour of the bill and commend the member for Morialta for instigating it. It is a brief but effective amendment and requires a brief but effective submission, since brevity is, after all, the soul of wit.
Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (15:16): I rise today to note serious road safety concerns within my electorate, particularly problems associated with Payneham Road and surrounding roads. I note the recent crashes in the area. Let me just say I acknowledge and welcome the current reconstruction of an intersection close to this road, being the Glynburn and Magill Road intersection, and I thank the member for Bragg who, when I was a candidate at the last state election, rallied and lobbied the current government and the local councils with me to upgrade that intersection. I am pleased to say from all accounts it is on track and looking good.
