During Question Time Mark asked the Treasurer, representing the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, a question about personal mobility devices.
Mark moved, for a fifth time, to disallow the Regulations that allow the Government to pilfer money from the Open Space Fund. The Legislative Council has already passed the same disallowance motion four times, yet the Government keeps putting the Regulations back in place.
In addition to moving to disallow Development Regulations relating to Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island, Mark today also moved to disallow Native Vegetation Regulations relating to the same National Park. Under these Regulations clearance of unspecified amounts of native vegetation inside the national park for roads, tracks, accommodation, service buildings, car parks, fire breaks, or anything else regarded as incidental to tourism no longer requires the approval of the Native Vegetation Council.
Today Mark moved to disallow Regulations concerning the Flinders Chase Tourist Accommodation made on 21 January 2021 that are designed to fast track and appeal-proof major private tourism developments valued at over $1 million inside Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island. Under the Regulations, other tourism development outside the park can also be fast tracked.
Today Mark introduced a Greens Private Members Bill that will ensure that the information provided electronically to the Government via the new COVID-19 QR code system is permanently deleted after 28 days.
Today Mark spoke at the second reading of the COVID-19 Emergency Response (Expiry) Amendment Bill 2021.
