PARLIAMENT

Timber Industry

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — The failure of successive coalition and Labor governments to transition the logging industry to plantations and away from native forests is costing jobs. The supply problem facing Victoria's timber industry, which has caused the Heyfield mill's closure, is not that the forest has been protected but the result of...


Urban Renewal Authority Victoria Amendment Bill

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the amendments to the Urban Renewal Authority Victoria Amendment (Development Victoria) Bill 2016. We have two amendments from the other place. They were put forward by the Greens — by Ms Dunn, the Victorian Greens planning spokesperson — and we have an amendment to those now put...



Student Representation on School Councils

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (12 452) My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Education. The action I seek is for the minister to make student representation on school councils mandatory. Student representation on school councils is currently only optional. There are a number of benefits to ensuring all school councils have student representation....


Multicultural Affairs

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — Victoria prides itself on its tolerant and multicultural society. It is what defines us as a state. That is why it is so disappointing to see the Liberal Party chase One Nation down the rabbit hole with blatantly discriminatory policies. Equating Muslim women who wear a burqa or niqab...



Constituency Question: Prahran Highschool Update

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (12 411) My constituency question is to the Minister for Education, and I ask: what is the latest information on the new Prahran High School? Many constituents have expressed to me that they are impressed with the recently released designs for the new school, which will house 650 students over four...


Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Bill 2017

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on behalf the Greens to the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Bill 2017. The disruption that has occurred in the taxi industry and the hire car industry through the arrival of Uber and other rideshare services has certainly brought incredible upheaval to that industry over the...



Members Statement: Tibetan community

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — On Sunday I had the pleasure of being the chief guest at the Tibetan Community of Australia (Victoria) new year celebration at Phoenix Park, East Malvern, where I was joined by members of Victoria's Tibetan community, Australian Tibet supporters and Chinese democracy activists. The celebration was a fantastic display...


Ports and Marine Legislation Amendment Bill 2017

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I thought I had better contribute to this debate because this is a very serious matter and the Greens are quite rightly appalled at the actions of the former Speaker and the former Deputy Speaker which have resulted in their resignations — their misuse of the second residence allowance and...



Election of Speaker

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — On behalf of the Victorian Greens and my absent colleague, the member for Melbourne, I would like to congratulate you on your election as Speaker. It is clear that now more than ever we need a Speaker that upholds the values and the standards that the Victorian people expect...


Question Without Notice: Member Conduct

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My question is to the Premier. Premier, surely the actions that have resulted in both the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker resigning and the member for Melton sitting on the crossbench show that MP entitlements need to be administered not by the MPs themselves but independently. Can the Premier...
