Keith Pitt MP Federal Member for HINKLER

PMB - Universities funding

Mr PITT: Those on the opposite side once again speak with forked tongue. We've heard this all before. It is like there is a pack of Edward Scissorhands on that side of the chamber. All we hear about is cuts, cuts, cuts and cuts. It is not true; it is dishonest and misleading. Every time we hear...

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...

MPI - Medicare

Mr PITT: Before I commence my contribution to the discussion on this matter of public importance, can I acknowledge the contributions of the member for Lyne and the member for Macarthur in their private lives. I think it is important to recognise the dedication they have had to the health system...

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. In his own words, Stix says that he has had more surgeries than birthdays, at just 29 years of age. He has had bilateral...
