In Parliament

scroll to continue

When I am in Parliament I ensure that I am a vocal advocate for the interests of my electorate, regularly participating in parliamentary debates on legislation and raising matters of particular interest to the communities I represent. I also make an effort to use my time in Parliament to recognise the work of local volunteer and community groups, individuals and businesses who are doing great things for South Australia.

I recently moved a motion condemning the State Labor Government for their poor managment of Brighton Road, calling on them to address this pressing local issue. Later in the year I have scheduled a motion congratulating Surf Life Saving South Australia for the great service that it provides.

I serve on the Parliament’s Economic and Finance Committee and have taken a lead role in driving an inquiry into capping council rates, while I have also recently served on a select committee into the e-cigarette industry in South Australia.

I am also the Liberal Party’s Shadow Cabinet Secretary, which gives me a role in organising and attending Shadow Cabinet meetings as well as some policy coordination activities.

Parkinson's Disease

Mr SPEIRS ( Bright ) ( 12:18 :58 ): I too rise today to support the member for Florey's motion which seeks to recognise those who are suffering from Parkinson's disease and the need for all South Australians to increase their awareness of those who are suffering from this disease, and for the South Australian government, also, to have an increased focus on support for those who are suffering from this disease and their families.
