CHAFFEY ELECTORATE Mr WHETSTONE (Chaffey) (15:47): I rise to talk about a fantastic worker program. The South Australian government have been outstanding in enabling a workforce to come into South Australia, but in particular into the Riverland, to be a part of the Seasonal Worker Program.
Mr WHETSTONE (Chaffey) (12:26): I, too, rise to commend the member for Hammond's excellent motion. I would like to also pay tribute to the contribution that many of our veterans have made to give us the freedoms and the democracy we have in this modern world.
Mr WHETSTONE (Chaffey) (12:47): I, too, rise to make a contribution to this motion. I think it is a very important motion that members of this place should reflect on, particularly the celebration of multiculturalism and the recognition of Australia's diversity.
Riverland residents are being asked to step up in the fight against fruit fly and strip their backyard fruit trees as the State Government, horticulture industry and Riverland growers continue to work to contain the recent outbreaks.
Mr WHETSTONE (Chaffey) (17:03): I, too, rise to make a contribution on this very emotive issue. We know that there are many representatives in this chamber who have been lobbied for a significant period of time. Those people have gone to their representatives, their members of parliament, to express their view and, in most instances, to express an opinion. They have opinions far and wide, but they have an opinion one way or the other.
Mr WHETSTONE (Chaffey) (16:00): I would like to speak about some of the grassroots sports in South Australia. As we know, sports are one of the key components of healthy living, growing up and building great communities and societies and are particularly critical to regions and electorates such as Chaffey.
