Grievance debate: Cost of living

 I rise to speak on the grievance debate today, and I want to grieve for those Victorians who are struggling with the cost of living—Victorians who are being pushed to the margins and Victorians who are being pushed, essentially, off the metaphorical cliff. There are rising costs, flatlining wages. There...


Members statements: Prahran electorate

It is an absolute privilege to serve as the member for Prahran, as our local member of Parliament. I love Prahran. It is a thriving, vibrant, diverse community, with Chapel Street as its social and economic heart. It has been my home for well over a decade, from when I...



Question without Notice: South Yarra public housing

Mr HIBBINS: My question is for the Minister for Housing. Minister, Azra has lived in South Yarra’s public housing towers for 17 years. In that time her home has never been upgraded. She is forced to stuff old newspapers to fill gaps in the windows to keep the cold out,...


Adjournment: Rent controls

My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation, and the action I seek is for the minister to protect renters with controls on rents, improved standards and more secure leases.

Constituency question: Stonnington Community Assist

Question without Notice: Phase out coal

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): My question is to the Premier. Victoria’s three coal-fired power stations are currently Victoria’s biggest source of climate pollution, and the Loy Yang power plants are licensed by the government to operate for another 2½ decades. Premier, why doesn’t the government have a clear, transparent time line...



Members statement: Climate Action

This is the critical decade for climate action. Members of the Prahran community know we are in a climate emergency, and we want to be powered by 100 per cent renewable energy. In fact with fires, floods and extreme weather here in Australian and across the world, we are already experiencing...


Constituency question: Prahran TAFE site

My question is for the Minister for Training and Skills, and I ask: can the minister please provide an update on the acquisition of the Prahran TAFE site and the development of a master plan for the site? I was really pleased to hear some time ago that the government...



Adjournment: St Kilda Primary School

My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is that St Kilda Primary School are given the funding required to build their community hub. St Kilda Primary is a terrific local school with a thriving community and a dedicated team of staff. However, they are in...


Members statements: St Kilda Hebrew congregation

I attended the St Kilda Hebrew congregation multifaith and multicultural Shabbat and Kaddish. I was really impressed by the engagement with many members of various multicultural and faith groups and the strong message of unity by Rabbi Glasman, as well as what must be one of the best choirs going...
