Keith Pitt MP Federal Member for HINKLER

Condolence motion - Paul Neville

Mr PITT: I rise to speak for Paul Christopher Neville, former member for Hinkler. He was born on 28 March 1940 and passed away on 1 January 2019, aged 78 years. I'm sure those who speak after me will talk about Paul's achievements and the great things he's done in this part of the parliament. I...

90 second statement - Border security

Mr PITT: I acknowledge the previous member's contribution. Having been through a one-in-200-year flood, in 2013, I know that North Queenslanders are doing it tough, but they are resilient and will recover.

Back to the matters at hand. We know that those opposite do not...

Second Reading - Treasury Laws Amendment (Making Sure Foreign Investors Pay Their Fair Share of Tax in Australia and Other Measures) Bill 2018

Mr PITT: I rise to speak on the Treasury Laws Amendment (Making Sure Foreign Investors Pay Their Fair Share of Tax in Australia and Other Measures) Bill 2018. This bill addresses unintended loopholes and tightens some of the broad tax concessions that allow foreign investors to get a very low...

Adjournment Debate - Queensland State Government

Mr PITT: I rise to talk once again about the HMAS Tobruk which is now a fabulous dive site off the coast of my home electorate of Hinkler between Bundaberg and Hervey Bay. It has taken a long time—many years, in fact. It was a national fight to deliver the ship, and, as many of the people in...

Constituency Statement - Bundaberg Community Safety and Emergency Services Expo

Consideration of Senate Message - Live Animal Exports

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. I say to the member for Rankin: he knows a good scare campaign when he sees one. There was a very...

Question without Notice - Rural and Regional Services

Mr PITT: My question is to the Deputy Prime Minister. Will the Deputy Prime Minister update the House on how a strong economy enables investment in the services that regional Australians rely on and how a weaker economy, through higher taxes, would put this investment at risk?

Mr...

90 second statement - Energy

Mr PITT: In recent weeks we have heard a lot about the big stick, and I note the contribution and the attempt at Monty Python humour earlier. What we do need to talk about will be the application of this legislation when the opportunity comes up. I'm pleased that Minister Angus Taylor is in the...

Constituency Statement - Cashless Debit Card

Mr PITT: I rise to discuss with the House the cashless debit card rollout trial for my electorate of Hinkler and, once again, the activities of the Greens. This legislation was passed through both the House and the Senate, and the trial will commence in my electorate, between Bundaberg and...
