PARLIAMENT

Adjournment matter: Members of Parliament code of conduct

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My adjournment matter is for the Special Minister of State, and the action I seek is for the minister to overhaul the current code of conduct for members of Parliament. The seemingly endless series of scandals shows the current code of conduct is out of date, inadequate and...


Drugs, Poisons and Controlled Substances Amendment (Medically Supervised Injecting Centre) Bill 2017

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise in support of the Drugs, Poisons and Controlled Substances Amendment (Medically Supervised Injecting Centre) Bill 2017 and the creation of a supervised injecting centre in North Richmond. This medically supervised injecting centre will save lives and it will reduce the number of overdoses that are currently occurring...



Constituency question: South Yarra Station upgrade

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My constituency question is to the Minister for Public Transport, and I ask: what is the latest information on the plan to upgrade South Yarra station? Earlier this year commuters were pleased to see that finally $2 million was allocated to start planning for an upgrade to South Yarra...


Matters of Public Importance - Great Forest National Park

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to support the creation of the great forest national park, which is discussed in this matter of public importance. This really is, I think, one of the most exciting policy proposals in Victoria — to end logging in our native forests and create the great forest national...



Gambling Regulation Amendment (Gaming Machine Arrangements) Bill 2017

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on behalf of the Victorian Greens on the Gambling Regulation Amendment (Gaming Machine Arrangements) Bill 2017. This government had a real opportunity before the pokies licences expire in 2022 to put in place a tough regime for pokies operators that would genuinely reduce harm...


Members Statement: Hornby Street Crossover

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to condemn the appalling way that VicRoads has handled the closure of the Hornby Street, Windsor, crossover. It goes something like this: close the crossover with no warning to residents and no chance for consultation; months later, despite requests for a face-to-face meeting with VicRoads, tell...



Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2017

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran)  — I rise to speak on behalf of the Greens to the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2017. The Greens will be supporting this bill. Voluntary assisted dying, or dying with dignity, has been a long-held policy of the Greens. It is worth pointing out that whilst I personally support this...


Gaming licences

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My question is to the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation. Last month the government allowed the approval of 50 pokies to be installed in the Grandview Hotel in Fairfield, against the wishes of the local community. This is despite the Royal Commission into Family Violence showing a...



Caulfield Racecourse Reserve Bill 2017

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak briefly on the Caulfield Racecourse Reserve Bill 2017 because I really understand the absolute importance of open space and recreational space in our area. This bill will have a positive effect not just on the Glen Eira municipality and the Glen Eira community, but those...


St Kilda Road Improvement Study

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (13 069) My constituency question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and I ask: what is the latest information on the St Kilda Road safety improvement study? With spring arriving and the sun coming out more and more people will be riding their bikes, St Kilda Road is one...
