Bushfires and Emergency Services

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (16:13): As a proud member of the Country Fire Service, I am happy to support this motion supporting our emergency services, our volunteers and our community. I think 'community' is the word here because what happens when we have these disasters is that a whole community gets together. We have seen it whether it has been at Yorketown or whether it has been in the Mid North. We have had some fires in the Mallee as well, and obviously in recent times we have seen the ongoing fires in Queensland and New South Wales.

World Routes Aviation Conference

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (12:50): I would like to support the amended motion that was put by the Minister for Primary Industries. I just wish sometimes that people would concentrate a bit more on what happens in here. The member for Mawson indicated that we were churlish and childish in not acknowledging what the previous government had done, when the amendment that we want to insert actually reads:

SA Pathology and SA Medical Imaging

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (12:36): I rise to support the motion as amended by the Minister for Energy and Mining. Everything that needs to be said from the government side has been said, but I just have a few comments in regard to the hypocrisy of the people on the other side. It was those people, when they were in government, who commissioned reports and commissioned the privatisation of medical services throughout South Australia.

Country Cabinet

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (16:04): Thank you, Mr Acting Speaker, and what a fine job you are doing. I rise to support the amended motion and to acknowledge the hundreds of trips that our ministers and our Premier do between them. They not only come out to our electorates but obviously some of our ministers live in our electorates. In fact, you would think that the Minister for Water had a second house down at the Coorong, judging by the number of times he is in my electorate or in the electorate of Finniss or in the electorate of MacKillop.

Murray-Darling Basin Plan

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (12:24): I am proud to acknowledge this motion that was raised by the Premier in regard to a response to the recent Productivity Commission inquiry into the River Murray and also the royal commission into the Murray-Darling Basin. Obviously the history of the Murray-Darling Basin and the changes that have been implemented mainly in the last 120 years or so, with the infill of barrages, locks and weirs, have dramatically changed the river from what it was when it was a free-flowing river system. It has been dramatically changed.

Economic and Finance Committee: Annual Report 2018-19

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (11:30): I rise to make a brief contribution on the annual report of the Economic and Finance Committee and certainly appreciate their good work in various inquiries, whether it is on investment attraction or skilled migration. I acknowledge the hearings and the reference they are studying in relation to the crash repair industry, which is an interesting industry in that in my mind the insurance industry thinks it can manipulate it in regard to preferred repairers, and I am sure they are getting good evidence on that.
