Keith Pitt MP Federal Member for HINKLER

PMB - World Osteoporosis Day

Mr PITT: I thank those opposite for the opportunity to provide a brief contribution to this motion. Certainly World Osteoporosis Day is an important recognition of those challenges inside this part of the health sector. The reason that I've jumped to my feet is, quite simply, my wife is a...

Adjournment Debate - Cashless Debit Card

Mr PITT: I rise to talk about the cashless debit card rollout in my electorate of Hinkler. The legislation for this rollout passed both the House and the Senate last week, and I once again thank those senators who had the courage to make the decision to actually pass the legislation, which...

Constituency Statement - TPP 11

Mr PITT (Hinkler): I rise to speak in support of the TPP-11, another trade agreement signed by the coalition government.

Over the last five years it has been a focus for the Liberal and National government to deliver those new trade openings, and we have signed or...

Second Reading - Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Bill 2018

Mr PITT:  I rise to speak in support of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Bill 2018 and the related bill. One of the reasons that this first bill is so important to the people I represent is that my electorate of Hinkler has one of the largest percentages of elderly people in Australia...

90 second statement - Bundaberg Brewed Drinks 50th anniversary

Mr PITT (Hinkler):  This week it is all about anniversaries, and I'll indulge and give a shout-out to my wife, who's put up with me for 19 years today, who's at work. But it's not the only anniversary. This week it is also the anniversary of an icon in my electorate, Bundaberg...

MPI - Aged Care

Mr PITT (Hinkler):  Can I say to those opposite: is there anything that they won't politicise? I note the contribution of the previous speaker, and they are the facts: there are more women in aged care. But that is because, quite simply, they live longer than men on average....

Constituency Statement - Bundaberg Hostel Association

Mr PITT (Hinkler):  I commence by acknowledging our guests who have come into the Federation Chamber. They were in the main chamber earlier. I acknowledge them all. It's great to have visitors.

Last week I met with a group of local backpacker hostel providers in Bundaberg...

90 second statement - Tobruk

Mr PITT (Hinkler):  I also acknowledge Percy in the crowd! It's great to have the children of members here to see what mum and dad do every single day.

Once again, I'm back talking about HMAS Tobruk. It was scuttled in June after a long battle across Australia in...

90 second statement - Primary Schools Cup

Mr PITT (Hinkler):  I rise to congratulate all of those competitors in the Primary Schools Cup for netball held in Bundaberg over the weekend. There were 800-plus competitors in Bundaberg—with their support teams and families in tow—and I'm told it was a great event, incredibly...

PMB - Populations in the regions

Mr PITT (Hinkler):  I rise to speak on this PMB. As has been pointed out by many of the speakers this morning, one of the great opportunities, particularly for regional centres like my own, is the decentralisation of not only the Public Service but also there are opportunities...
