Parliament

Child Protection Department

Ms SANDERSON ( Adelaide ) ( 14:18 :09 ): My question is to the Minister for Child Protection Reform. Can the minister now identify how many of the 102 Families SA staff identified in the Hyde review are still employed by the agency, and how many are currently suspended on full pay?

Vote of No Confidence in Minister Rankine

Ms SANDERSON (Adelaide) (14:55):

most ridiculous thing I have ever heard come out of his mouth.

Budget Reply Speech 2014

Ms SANDERSON (Adelaide) (12:22):
I rise to make my contribution regarding the 2014-15 budget. As a state, we are currently looking at a
deficit in the 2013-14 year of $1.2 billion, the largest in the state's history. In the 2014-15 year, the
deficit is predicted to be $479 million.

Car Park Tax Supply Bill Grievance 2014

I would like to put on the record some of the testimonials that I have been receiving from residents, business owners and people throughout the city who are affected by the proposed car parking tax. The first resident lives at the UNO apartments and does not have a car. The UNO apartments were approved and built with only 36 car parks for 146 apartments. As she does not have street frontage, she is not entitled to a parking permit from council.

Capital City Committee Amendment 2014

That this bill be now read a second time.

The Parliament of South Australia established the Capital City Committee under the City of Adelaide Act 1998. That act is recognition that a thriving capital city is critical to the overall success of the state. The act establishes arrangements for the intergovernmental liaison between the state government and the Corporation of the City of Adelaide for the strategic development of the city.

Maiden Speech
