Today Mark spoke about the climate emergency and outlined the Australian Greens' plan for a $2.2 billion fund for household battery storage.
During Question Time, Mark asked the Minister for Health and Wellbeing whether he agreed that climate change is greatest threat to health this century and what actions he or the Department of Health are taking to prevent climate change getting worse and further harming the health of South Australians.
During Question Time, Mark asked the Minister for Health and Wellbeing again about the SA Government's position on the Federal Government's proposal to deregulate a number of new genetic modification techniques, given that the states had been asked to sign-off on the proposed regulatory changes by 11 March this year.
During Question Time, Mark asked the Minister for Health and Wellbeing about the SA Government's position on the federal deregulation of new genetic modification techniques, given the significance of this decision and the likely negative impact on overseas markets for Australian food products if deregulation proceeds. Mark also requested that the Minister release the regulatory impact statement and any analysis on trade and market access impacts, including economic impacts on South Australian farmers and businesses.
Mark today introduced a Greens' Private Members Bill to ensure the continued protection of South Australia's heritage buildings.
During Question Time, Mark asked the Treasurer, as Leader of the Government in the Legislative Council, about providing access to cabinet documents in light of the Government's election promise and commitment to greater transparency and openness in government.
