PARLIAMENT

Bail Amendment (Stage Two) Bill 2017

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on behalf of the Greens to the Bail Amendment (Stage Two) Bill 2017, which I understand makes further changes to the bail system in response to the bail review undertaken by Justice Coghlan, with this bill really addressing those measures of the bail system...


Adjournment: LGBTI Equality

Members Statement: Privatisation policy

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — It is time to turn the page on the era of privatisation and neoliberalism in Victoria. For the past 25 years Victorian governments have been privatising public assets like energy, transport, the training sector, social services and even prisons. The current government has sold off the port of Melbourne....


Question without Notice: West Gate tunnel project

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran)  — My question is to the Premier. Premier, you have signed the West Gate tunnel contract before knowing how it will be paid for. In fact it would appear that the 10-year toll extension will not be introduced until the next term of Parliament. Premier, why didn't you introduce...

Domestic Animals Amendment (Puppy Farms and Pet Shops) Bill 2016

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the Domestic Animals Amendment (Puppy Farms and Pet Shops) Bill 2016. I am going to find it a bit difficult to top the previous speaker. And do you know what? I am not even going to try. This bill has come about because...


Members Statement: Public Housing

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to oppose the government's sell-off of public housing land to private developers, including at Bangs Street in Prahran. We need more public housing and we need better public housing, not a sell-off plan that will only slightly increase the number of units, reduce capacity by reducing...



Question on Notice: Melbourne Metro tunnel construction

QUESTION ON NOTICE — Mr Hibbins to ask the Minister for Public Transport —  With reference to awarding the contract for the construction of the Melbourne Metro tunnel and stations: How have the Cross Yarra Partnership consortium demonstrated that their designs for the project do not preclude the provision of a future South Yarra station?
