PARLIAMENT

Transport Legislation Amendment Bill 2020

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): The member for Mordialloc must be so visionary—he has already envisaged my speech that I have not actually given yet. He has taken visionary to a whole new level there. I hope my speech matches up with the one he has already got in his mind. The Transport...

Questions without notice: Djab Wurrung Sacred Trees

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): My question is to the Premier. On Monday, on the very day the Premier was announcing that Melbourne would come out of lockdown, the government cut down a sacred Djab Wurrung directions tree, which has devastated many in the Djab Wurrung community and First Nations people. Premier, did...


Education and Training Reform Amendment Bill 2020

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): I rise to speak in support of the Education and Training Reform Amendment Bill 2020.

Members Statement: COVID-19 Green New Deal

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): I want to thank everyone in my community for their efforts to get us this far. It still is a difficult time—an incredibly difficult time—for so many people, and as we open up we recognise that getting through this pandemic is only the first step. We are in...
