Consideration of Senate Message - Live Animal Exports

Mr PITT: Firstly, I will say that all Australians, when they saw those horrifying images, were simply horrified. That is a statement of fact. But what I put to those members of the House is this: there are an awful lot of horrifying images in Australian agriculture, if you are actually a...

MPI - Energy

Mr PITT: Firstly, can I go to the contribution for the member for Rankin. The member for Rankin is clearly a little bit under the weather, so we'll give him leeway. I hope you feel better soon, Jim.

Constituency Statement - Hinkler Regional Deal

Mr PITT: I rise to discuss the regional pilot deal that was announced in recent weeks for the electorate of Hinkler. In my electorate, between Bundaberg and Hervey Bay, we have roughly 105,000 voters. As many of the people in this chamber know, as they have heard me talk about this before, we...

90 second statement - Hinkler Regional Deal

Mr PITT: It took a while, but we got there eventually. In recent weeks, we announced a regional pilot and regional deal for my electorate of Hinkler. I just want to place on the record my thanks, particularly to the former minister, John McVeigh, for the work that he did in changing this policy...

Grievance Debate - Home Care

Mr PITT: I raise a grievance on behalf of the people who I represent in my electorate. Like you, Mr Deputy Speaker, my electorate is one that has a lot of seniors, a lot of retirees, a lot of pensioners and, in particular, a lot of people who are not well-off and who do not have a large amount...
