90 second statement - Bundaberg Brewed Drinks

Mr PITT: Mr Speaker, I know that you've heard of it—Bundaberg Brewed Drinks and their famous ginger beer—but what you might not have heard is that, last week, this icon of our local region, of my home town, of our country, has announced that it will construct a super-brewery in Bundaberg. It's a...

MPI - Payday Loans

Mr PITT: It's a great pleasure to rise to speak on this MPI. There has been some very good contributions from both sides of the parliament as part of this debate. In my view, this is an industry which I simply don't like. I really don't. I don't like the fact that it exists. I don't like the...

Constituency Statement - Jim Quaite and Norma Hannant

Mr PITT: I rise to advise the House of the passing of two local stalwarts, in Bundaberg and in Hervey Bay. Jim Quaite was a lifelong supporter of local hockey. He was an administrator, player, coach, known as a visionary and an extremely hard worker. In fact, as well as doing all of his...

Adjournment Debate - Energy

Mr PITT : I'm pleased to follow the member for Whitlam, because, once again, we can actually define the difference between idealism and realism. On the call for 100-kilowatt solar panels, whilst it sounds like a fantastic idea, the reality is pretty straightforward. For the people who are...

Adjournment Debate - Daniel Stix Parker

Mr PITT: I rise to ask for the Federation Chamber's support for our local potential Invictus Games champion, Daniel 'Stix' Parker. Stix has got an absolutely incredible story.

Constituency Statement - Fuel prices in Hinkler

Mr PITT: I rise to talk of something of concern to all of us in this place around the cost of living, and that is the current price of fuel, particularly in regional areas. This is an issue which has been raised with me and, I am sure, raised with all colleagues right around the...

Second Reading - Treasury Laws Amendment (Lower Taxes for Small and Medium Businesses) Bill 2018

Mr PITT: While the previous member's still in the chamber, I'd like to point out the best thing he can do for energy in Queensland is ring Annastacia Palaszczuk, the Queensland Labor Premier. There is one owner of the retailers in regional Queensland, there is one owner of the poles and wires,...

Constituency Statement - Anniversaries in Hinkler electorate

Mr PITT: I rise to speak about four significant anniversaries that occurred in my electorate in recent weeks. Bundaberg Brewed Drinks had their 50th anniversary—50 years making the famous Bundaberg ginger beer and other products. Steinhardt Family Farms had their 60th anniversary. Better known...

90 second statement - Tobruk

Mr PITT:  On the weekend Minister Leeanne Enoch from the Queensland Labor government announced that HMAS Tobruk would remain on her side in 30 metres of water and that no attempt would be made to right her. However, it didn't take her long to sink in the slipper to me...

PMB - Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety

Mr PITT: Firstly, I acknowledge the Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care, Ken Wyatt, who is in attendance in the chamber, and I thank the minister for the visits he has made to my region. Aged care is an incredibly important provision of services into my local region for some very...
