PARLIAMENT

Government Business Program

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the government business program. The Greens will not be supporting the government business program in this instance for two reasons. Firstly, I do have amendments to the Equal Opportunity Amendment (Religious Exceptions) Bill 2016. I have provided those amendments to the relevant ministers, I...


Speech: Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Amendment Bill 2016

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on behalf of the Greens on the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Amendment Bill 2016, which amends the Births, Deaths and Marriages Act 1996 to provide for the self-determination of sex on a person's birth certificate and to remove the requirements for sex affirmation...



Speech: Planning Controls

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — The decision of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) to approve a 26-storey development at St Kilda Junction is an example of the state government's failed approach to planning. The state government rejected interim planning controls over the St Kilda Road south precinct which would have placed a preferred height...


Melbourne and Olympic Parks Amendment Bill 2016

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the Melbourne and Olympic Parks Amendment Bill 2016, which changes the reservation status of Crown land in relation to the Tanderrum Bridge to the Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust.

Police and Justice Legislation Amendment (Miscellaneous) Bill 2016

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the Police and Justice Legislation Amendment (Miscellaneous) Bill 2016. This bill makes a number of technical amendments, but its primary purpose, its main purpose, is to make changes to the Police Registration and Services Board by implementing the recommendations within the Victorian Equal Opportunity...


Constituency Question: Improvements to South Yarra Station

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (8145) My constituency question is to the Minister for Public Transport. I ask when public consultation regarding an upgrade to South Yarra station will begin. I ask in response to a media report in the Age of 6 July, where the minister stated that improvements would be considered in consultation with locals....



Adjournment: Business of the house

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) (By leave) — I rise to speak briefly on this motion, and we will be joining with the opposition in opposing this motion. This is truly politics and Parliament at its worst. I think the situation of filling this vacancy was described in the media as a farce, and it...


Local Government Amendment Bill 2016

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — Just briefly on this bill, it has obviously been brought forward to avoid the absolute fiasco of having 13 councils dismissed or councillors being excluded from being able to hold that position. Following the commencement of the Local Government Amendment (Improved Governance) Act 2015 individual councils were required to update...



Windsor myki retailers

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (8155) My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Public Transport. The action I seek is for the minister to allow the Chapel Convenience Store at 23 Chapel Street, Windsor, and Windsor Lotto at 41 Chapel Street to sell myki cards. Apart from the two ticket machines at Windsor station the...


Legislative Council vacancy

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the motion to reject the Legislative Council's motion to hold a joint sitting to fill a casual vacancy for the vacant Northern Victoria Region seat in the upper house. I will start by reading from section 27A of the Constitution Act...
