Planning, Development and Infrastructure (Commencement of Code) Amendment Bill

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (12:50): I rise to speak to the Planning, Development and Infrastructure (Commencement of Code) Amendment Bill.

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (11:55): It is with great pride that I rise to speak to the 34th report of the Public Works Committee in relation to the rebuild of the dog fence.
