Adjournment - South Australia

Tonight, I wanted to speak about the state that we find South Australia in, and not just on water issues. We are losing another seat at the federal level. We have a redistribution underway at the moment. In 1997, we had 13 seats in South Australia and, in 1998, we had a redistribution and went to 12... ... more

MPI Health funding

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (15:59): I sometimes think those opposite are living in a parallel universe. Yesterday I made some comments in this House that upset some people—that if a lie is repeated often enough people start to believe it. That's what is happening from that ... ... more

Constituency Statement Rural Doctors

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (10:12): I rise again to speak in this place on the supply of doctors in rural areas. I prepared a report about two years ago, and updated it 12 months ago, with some suggestions to address this shortfall. Twelve months ago there were 28 vacancies... ... more

PMB Education Funding

Mr RAMSEY: I do believe, though, that a mistruth is being repeated here which is simply not correct. Labor and the member opposite claim to have the high moral ground on education. On one hand they say David Gonski's the font of all knowledge on education, when in fact Mr Gonski ... ... more

Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Legislation Amendment (Operational Efficiency) Bill 2017

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (16:43): I will come to the amendment later on. I note that the last two-thirds of the member for Hunter's speech was about the amendment rather than the legislation before us. In the first place, I will address the legislation before us, and I ... ... more

Clontarf Foundation

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (13:53): On Tuesday I had the very great pleasure of catching up with Gerard Neesham. I met him many years ago with the great member for Canning Don Randall, who unfortunately has passed now. Gerard was a former teacher, a WAFL and AFL player, and... ... more

Cashless Debit Card

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (17:59): I'm very proud to stand in this chamber as the member representing the first community in Australia that had the gumption to attack one of the great social evils within its midst—in particular, excessive alcohol consumption. That commun... ... more

Tabling Committee Report Regional Development and Decentralisation

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (15:38): I thank the member for Paterson for those remarks, and I think it's important that perhaps someone from the government side as well make a presentation on this particular report, considering that the member for Groom has been promoted an... ... more

Report Tabling Regional Development and Decentralisation Committee

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (17:59): I'm very proud to stand in this chamber as the member representing the first community in Australia that had the gumption to attack one of the great social evils within its midst—in particular, excessive alcohol consumption. That commun... ... more

MPI NBN

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (15:52): When the coalition was elected to parliament in 2013 there were no premises in my electorate of Grey connected to the NBN. Work had started in Port Augusta, but it had ceased because the contractor had withdrawn from the contract. In fact... ... more
