ASER (Restructure) (Facilitation of Riverbank Development) Amendment Bill

Adjourned debate on second reading. 

(Continued from 4 August 2016.) 

The Hon. J.A. DARLEY ( 15:55 ): In my briefing with the government on this bill, it was explained to me that this was a very simple bill that was needed to facilitate the development of the Riverbank.

Adjourned debate on motion of Hon. J.S.L. Dawkins: 

That the report of the committee on Natural Resources South Australia Business Plans and Regional Levies, 2016-17 , be noted. 

(Continued from 22 June 2016) 

The Hon. J.S.L. DAWKINS ( 17:32 ): I rise to conclude the debate on this matter. I thank the Hon. Mr Brokenshire, the Hon. Ms Lensink and the Hon. Mr Kandelaars for their contributions. I will say a little bit more about that in a moment. Sir, you and others will be relieved to know that I intend to be brief. I think the speech with which I moved that this report be noted was probably the second-longest one that I have ever uttered in this chamber, and that was about 35 minutes, so I will not be anything like as long.
