Question Without Notice - Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain

My question is for the Minister for Trade and Investment, and it is in relation to the HESC brown-coal-to-hydrogen project. Minister, why on earth is the government continuing to support a project that would prolong the use of fossil fuels in Victoria and add to our state’s carbon emissions during...


Question Without Notice - Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain

Within this project, in order to deal with the massive amounts of carbon emissions that it would produce, the project is relying on carbon capture and storage. The reality is the maths is in on carbon capture and storage: it does not work. So why is the government continuing to...



Matter of Public Importance - Government Performance

I rise, and, look, I am a bit disappointed that the member for Ovens Valley has not stayed in the chamber, because I reckon you can get a good latte in the Ovens Valley – is it Bright, I think? Last time I was in Bright I reckon you could...


Members statement: Duck Hunting Season 2023

An overwhelming majority of Victorians want to see duck shooting outlawed. A member: Boo. That’s right – boo to duck shooting; I concur with the member below me. More than two-thirds of Victorians agree the duck shooting should be banned. It is a practice that has no place in Victoria....



Question without Notice: Wage cap

Mr HIBBINS: My question is to the Treasurer. Treasurer, over the past year inflation has risen to 7.8 per cent, the cost of food has increased by over 9 per cent and the cost of housing has increased by over 10 per cent, yet the government’s public sector wages policy...


Constituency question: Pop up bike lanes

My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and I ask: what is the latest information on pop-up bike lanes in the Prahran electorate? There have been three deaths of cyclists on Victorian roads in the past fortnight, showing just how important safe separated bike infrastructure...



Address-in-reply 2023

I rise to speak to the address-in-reply to the Governor’s speech, and although this is not my first speech, I have been informed that my children may be tuning in through the live stream. We felt it about time that they see what Papa gets up to in the big...


Adjournment: Recommendations from Ombudsman’s Investigation

My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Housing and the action I seek is that the minister adopts the recommendations of the Ombudsman’s investigation into complaint handling in the Victorian social housing sector, which was released in July last year. Prahran is home to several public housing estates, and...



Members statement: New term of parliament

I rise to thank the residents of Prahran for re-electing me as the member for Prahran – it is a huge honour – and to thank the volunteers and the supporters who worked so hard and lent a helping hand on our campaign. It is deeply appreciated. I am really...


Grievance debate: Cost of living

 I rise to speak on the grievance debate today, and I want to grieve for those Victorians who are struggling with the cost of living—Victorians who are being pushed to the margins and Victorians who are being pushed, essentially, off the metaphorical cliff. There are rising costs, flatlining wages. There...
