Speeches

ADJOURNMENT - TUESDAY, 17 NOVEMBER 2020

I speak on the significance of parliamentary prayers and on the historical and cultural dialogue they symbolise.

Before proceedings commence on a sitting day members say the parliamentary prayer and The Lord's Prayer.

Those prayers play a significant role in the ritual of our Parliament and Chamber and have stood the test of time.

They link our current deliberations with our past.

ADJOURNMENT - THURSDAY, 18 JUNE 2020

I want to rise today to speak on what I consider to be a very worrying trend and a new culture being created by some elements of the Australian community.

Those that I call the permanently outraged professional activist.

It doesn't matter what the issue is, they are a group of individuals who have become professionals at being offended on behalf of others, and have morphed into professional protesters and angry activists.

REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE REFORM BILL 2019

I speak on the Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019 and note the Premier has authorised a free vote for Liberal Party members of Parliament. For this reason, I believe it is important I outline to the House, but most importantly to my party and the people of New South Wales, my views on this matter and how I will vote. It is incumbent that we all explain our position. We are leaders and we write the laws of our State.
