What a journey it has been! This morning trains pulled in at the lowered Oaklands Railway Station. It was a fantastic sight, and certainly one our community has worked long and hard to see achieved.Read more
The Hon. C.L. WINGARD (Gibson—Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services, Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing) (15:41): Before I make my grieve, I table the quote as requested by the member for West Torrens during my response to a question in question time.
It is with sorrow that I address the house on the passing, on 8 April 2009, of Ms Dorothy Pyatt OAM, one of South Australia Police's women policing pioneers. Dorothy May Pyatt OAM was born in London on 26 August 1918 and celebrated her 100th birthday last year.Read more
The Hon. C.L. WINGARD (Gibson—Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services, Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing) (14:36): I thank the member for the very important question and know that the member for MacKillop, I hope like everyone in this place, is very keen to keep our entire community as safe as possible. In the wake of the terrible tragedies in Christchurch and Sri Lanka in recent weeks, it has highlighted the potential of terrorist ideology and extremism in our communities and the danger that is associated with that. We join with other nations around the world in condemning the actions that we have seen from extremists.Read more

Hasn’t time flown by? Only one more week until commuters will no longer have to stop for trains at Oaklands Crossing!
Oaklands Crossing has been an issue in our community for decades and to finally see our community’s hard work payoff is nothing short of amazing.
As you may recall, it was in June 2017 that $174 million in Federal, State and Local Council funding was announced which would see the Seaford rail line be lowered to tunnel under Morphett Road as well as a new lowered Oaklands Railway Station.Read more
Each year I have the honour of presenting Community Recognition Awards to deserving people in our community whose work tends to go under the radar. These people work tirelessly to improve and serve our local area but are often not formally recognised. It is often the lesser known efforts that make the biggest difference to the lives of others. Knowing this, I established these Community Recognition Awards to seek out those people and acknowledge how much their work is appreciated.Read more
The Hon. C.L. WINGARD (Gibson—Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services, Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing) (11:57): I rise to speak in support of the member of Waite's motion:
That this house opposes Bill Shorten and Labor's plans to abolish negative gearing and increase capital gains tax by 50 per cent, which would damage Australia's housing market and destroy equity in people's homes.Read more
Mr TRELOAR (Flinders) (14:39): My question is to the Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services. What steps has the Marshall government taken to improve community safety and deliver better services to our South Australian prisons?
Over the weekend we had an exciting announcement from the Federal Member for Boothby, Nicolle Flint MP, that her and the Federal Government will deliver the much-needed second stage of the upgrade to the Brighton Sports Complex.Read more
In March 2018, South Australians voted for a new government and a strong plan for real change.
The Marshall Liberal Government hasn't wasted a second delivering on our promises to create more jobs, lower costs and provide better services.Read more
