Coastal Bill - Second Reading Speech

Climate Change Readiness
Coastal Planning and Protection Bill 2012

Second Reading Speech

I move that the Bill now be read a second time.

Firstly Mr President, pursuant to standing order 126(1), I advise that this bill is not a uniform legislation bill. It does not ratify or give effect to an intergovernmental or multilateral agreement to which the government of the state is a party; nor does this bill, by reason of its subject matter, introduce a uniform scheme or uniform laws throughout the commonwealth.

Free Range Eggs Labelling Bill 2012 – Second Reading Speech

The term “free range” is losing its meaning. As the free range egg market expands and becomes more lucrative, every producer wants a piece of the valuable intellectual property embodied in the words “free range”. And as the term itself becomes degraded, consumers become more confused, and in that confusion consumers are duped and animal welfare standards are lost.
