PARLIAMENT

Drugs, Poisons and Controlled Substances Amendment Bill 2015

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the Drugs, Poisons and Controlled Substances Amendment Bill 2015. The Greens are concerned about this bill and the unintended consequences that could arise from it. This bill obviously takes a tough on crime approach that creates a range of new penalties, which are already...


Constituency Question: Tram Stops

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (Question 6534) My constituency question is to the Minister for Public Transport. A number of residents have contacted me regarding the issue of cars failing to stop for trams at tram stops, with the stop at the corner of Toorak Road and Chapel Street eastbound being of particular concern. 



Adjournment: Prahran electorate cycling

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. The action I seek is for the minister to invest in cycling infrastructure in the Prahran electorate.

Members Statement: Vocational Education and Training

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to bring attention to the shambolic state of vocational education and training (VET) in Victoria, and in particular the devastating effect it has had on our TAFE system and for our students.

Relationships Amendment Bill 2015

It...


Local Government Amendment (Fair Go Rates) Bill 2015

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — The Kennett era continues here and it continues with this bill. The ghost of Kennett arises! The curse of Kennett has gone from Hawthorn down to local governments now. We know the effects of Kennett's rate capping, the effects in the past with infrastructure backlog and the inability of...



Adoption Amendment (Adoption by Same-Sex Couples) Bill 2015

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the Adoption Amendment (Adoption by Same-Sex Couples) Bill 2015. This is a long overdue landmark bill which the Victorian Greens wholeheartedly support. It is a bill that will strengthen families of all kinds across Victoria by giving children of same-sex couples the same protections...


Adjournment: Prahran electorate secondary school

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is for the minister to meet with the State High School for Prahran community group. This is a newly formed group of parents who are championing the idea of a new state secondary school for...



Questions: Melbourne Metro Rail Project

Mr HIBBINS — My question is the Minister for Public Transport. Analysis by Public Transport Victoria shows that thousands of passengers will face longer travel times if a South Yarra interchange with Melbourne Metro is not built. Passengers travelling from South Yarra to St Kilda Road, Parkville or the west will have journey...

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on the Justice Legislation Amendment (Police Custody Officers) Bill 2015. The Greens will not be opposing the bill, but we do have some concerns, which I will outline
