Members Statement: Duck Hunting

Mr HIBBINS: The state government will soon decide on whether to proceed with this year’s duck shooting season. If you ask me, killing and maiming native animals for sport should not go ahead this year. It should be banned outright, just like in WA, New South Wales and Queensland.



Members Statement: President Biden Climate and Justice Policies

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): Joe Biden’s recent election was a welcome rejection of Trumpism in the United States, which unfortunately has become a feature of politics here at home, but what has also been welcome is the steps he has taken to address climate change and justice in the US. I thought...


Question without Notice: Electric Vehicles

Constituency questions: Housing in Prahran

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): My constituency question is to the Minister for Housing, and I ask: will any of the funding for housing initiatives in this year’s budget be expended within the Prahran electorate, and if so, where, when and how many units? I was certainly pleased to see the state...


Members Statement: COVID-19 Chapel Street

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): It was great to be out and about on Chapel Street over the weekend and see our local shopping strips coming back to life. Our shops, our restaurants and our bars—I was not short of a beer during the lockdown, but it was great to have a beer...



Questions without notice: Electric Vehicles

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): My question is to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change. Minister, governments around the world are increasing the uptake of electric vehicles by lowering costs and making them more affordable. Locally new electric vehicles make up less than 1 per cent of car sales, some...


Constituency Question: Home Energy Upgrades

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): My question is for the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, and the question I ask is: will the minister fund home energy upgrades for homes in the Prahran electorate in the upcoming state budget? Too many homes in the Prahran electorate, particularly rented homes, just are...
