The Barker Electorate

The Division of Barker is an Australian Electoral Division in the south-east of South Australia. The division was established on 2 October 1903, when South Australia’s original single multi-member division was split into seven single-member divisions.

It is named for Collet Barker, an early explorer of the region at the mouth of the Murray River. The 63,886 km² seat currently stretches from Morgan in the north to Port MacDonnell in the south, taking in the Murray Mallee, the Riverland, the Murraylands and most of the Barossa Valley,

Great turn out at the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering forum this morning. Im hosting this forum in conjunction with the Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast and AusIndustry to help equip local companies with the knowledge they need to expand and adapt to take advantage of new opportunities - like those in the defence sector. This is untimely about growing local businesses to strengthen our economy and create more and better paying jobs.

The dedication and hard work of our service clubs never ceases to amaze me! The Berri Lions Club raised $45,000 through the sale of their Images of the Riverland calendar to help fund a foam training pit for the Berri District Youth Club. I got to see the result of this great work on the weekend at the opening the new Riverland Regional Innovation and Sports Precinct which is now home to the Youth Club. This is a fantastic example of one community group helping another.

Thanks Tony Pasin MP for your comments. Our Club members are proud of what we have been able to achieve to help the Berri District Youth Club achieve their dream, with the help of our community. We are indebted to the Australian Lions Foundation for their support of this important community project.

A great honour to attend the re-dedication service for William Westbury who is the only Aboriginal Boer War Veteran from SA known thus far. Westburys grave site is in Pinnaroo Cemetery where a new headstone was unveiled today as part of a full Military commemoration to recognise and honour his service. Lest we forget.

The Coalition Government has fast tracked making these two new vaccines available through the National Immunisation Program following a recommendation by the Pharmaceutical Advisory Board. The vaccines will now be available free of charge from April for those over 65, just in time before flu season hits.

Fantastic to be at the Allendale Poll Hereford and Days Whiteface sales today in Bordertown. The Day family- Alastair and Jayne, Lachy and Lou, and parents Graham and Prue - hold  a long standing reputation in the industry. 
Our Free Trade Agreements are contributing to a period of high exports and excellent returns to the farm gate. More exports mean more jobs across the supply chain and our beef industry is a great example of this.

I joined a very enthusiastic Berri community yesterday to officially open the Riverland Regional Innovation and Sports Precinct yesterday! This facility has been talked about for over 30 years and thanks to the Coalition Governments National Stronger Regions Funding of $3.5 million, matched by the Berri Barmera Council, this fantastic facility is now open!

House of Reps 15 February 2018 - Penola Bypass
The Penola Bypass is a vital piece of infrastucture for the South East. I've been fighting for years to get this 'half finished' road completed. Even with $9 million of Federal Funding the State Labor Government still wont act! I spoke about this issue in Parliament this week. A Marshall Liberal Government and Nick McBride - Liberal for MacKillop will ensure this project gets finished.

Free Trade agreements are so important for our local economy. More trade means more jobs. Its a pity Xenophon doesn't understand this.

South Australian Liberal Party
"I'm sorry you feel that way Mr Xenophon and that's why you won't be getting my vote."

Watch this video to see why local exporters are disappointed with Nick Xenophon's opposition to recent Free Trade Agreements.

Free Trade Agreements have helped to strengthen our regional communities by growing the economy and creating local jobs.

At this election, don't risk regional jobs on Nick Xenophon's reckless populism.

Question Time 15 February
The Murray Darling Basin Plan is now in serious jepordy because Labor and Xenophon voted with the Greens last night in the Senate. No-one has more to lose than SA if the Plan falls apart. I asked the Minister about it today in Question Time. Watch his answer here.
