The Clerk announced that the following Petition had been lodged for presentation:

By the Hon. M. C. Parnell from 150 residents of South Australia, concerning the culling of kangaroos in the Central Mount Lofty Ranges.  The Petitioners pray that this Honourable House will call on the Government (in relation to the Central Mount Lofty Ranges) to -

·          Improve the assessment process for destruction permits for kangaroos so that the applicant’s claims of numbers of kangaroos are verified by sightings and/or a survey of neighbours and claims of alleged damage being caused are verified;

·          Revoke existing permits in Mylor and Longwood until kangaroo numbers and commercial consequences of claimed damage are verified;

·          Refuse permits to applicants if the claimed economic losses or the claimed numbers of kangaroos cannot be verified; and

  • Refuse yellow tag requests which allow kangaroo carcasses to be taken off the property.

Petition:
No. 13 - Culling of Kangaroos in the Central Mount Lofty Ranges.

 

 

 

                 By the Hon. J.S.L. Dawkins from 1,128 residents of South Australia, concerning voluntary euthanasia.  The Petitioners pray that this Honourable House will support the Voluntary Euthanasia Bill 2006 to enable law reform in South Australia to give citizens the right to choose voluntary euthanasia for themselves as such legislation, if enacted, would contain stringent safeguards against misuse of the provisions of the Act.
