For Wednesday 18 August 1993

      Notice of Motion: Other Motions-

 

Hon. J.P. Trainer to move - That this House calls upon the Federal Minister of the Environment to reconsider any hasty decision to increase taxes on leaded petrol in a manner that would financially discriminate against those South Australians obliged by harsh economic circumstances to drive older cars which cannot use unleaded petrol, and who would be further disadvantaged by being only able to dispose of their older cars at significant financial loss on an artificially depressed used-car market and further this House urges the Federal Government and the petroleum industry to fund programs to educate the public and promote unleaded petrol use, to monitor blood lead levels in children most at risk, and to assess the effect on older vehicles of lowering the RON Level from 97 to 96.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For Wednesday 25 August 1993

      Notice of Motion: Other Motions-

 

Mrs Hutchison to move - That this House expresses its dissatisfaction with the current position whereby retail prices for petroleum products are considerably higher in most country areas than in the metropolitan area and further, this House condemns the major oil companies who grant frequent wholesale rebates to selected metropolitan service stations but do not extend this to country service stations.

 

                                                        

 

Present during the day - All the Members except Hon. N.T. Peterson, Hon. S.M. Lenehan and Mr Lewis.
