Question without Notice: western distributor
Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My question is to the Premier. It is in regard to the western distributor toll road. The Premier has already said, 'This is an outstanding proposal'. He has already said, 'this project is exactly the sort of project Tony Abbott would want to partner with us on'. Is stage 3 of the market-led proposal guidelines a genuine assessment or just a rubber stamp?
Second Reading: Crimes Amendment (Repeal of Section 19A) Bill 2015
Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the Crimes Amendment (Repeal of Section 19A) Bill 2015, which the Greens welcome into this house. This bill seeks to repeal section 19A of the Crimes Act 1958, which was brought in in 1993 and which makes it an offence to intentionally infect another person with HIV.
Second Reading: Domestic Animals Amendment Bill 2015
Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the Domestic Animals Amendment Bill 2015. Taking this bill at face value, it places a one-year moratorium on the destruction of restricted breed dogs whilst a parliamentary inquiry into restricted breed legislation takes place. In previous debates regarding this matter — on previous bills and motions — the Greens have supported a review of how we can best prevent dog attacks. It is on that basis that we will be supporting this bill.
