PLANNING, DEVELOPMENT AND INFRASTRUCTURE (EXCEPTIONAL TREE REGISTER) AMENDMENT BILL (2)

Mr PEDERICK: I rise to speak to the Planning, Development and Infrastructure (Exceptional Tree Register) Amendment Bill introduced by the member for Waite. Certainly, as a regional member and as one serving on the Natural Resources Committee, I am very well aware of the benefits that trees, scrub out in the regions and also shelter belts, whether they be in regional areas or in urban areas, have on the community. I want to talk a bit about what we are leaving for the next parliament. As part of the Natural Resources Committee is the investigation into the Native Vegetation Act and the management of native vegetation, which can be a vexed argument.

FUNDING FOR HAMMOND ELECTORATE

After spending 12 years in opposition and some of my friends spending 16 years in opposition, it is so nice to see some money focused in the regions and in my seat of Hammond, and I want to go through some of those funding commitments.

ROAD TRAFFIC (DRUG DRIVING AND CARELESS OR DANGEROUS DRIVING) AMENDMENT BILL

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (11:51): I rise to speak in support of the Road Traffic (Drug Driving and Careless or Dangerous Driving) Amendment Bill, which has been so well outlined by the member for King where we want this bill to be used into the future. I will not go into some of that detail again, but I would like to correct the record and the assertions of the member for Light. It is just outrageous that, in his words, we do not understand road safety on this side of the house, when we saw for 16 years in opposition—and I was in this place for 12 of those years—the regions totally devoid of road upgrades, infrastructure upgrades and work—
