Business of the house: sessional orders
Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I note the passionate contributions of members to this debate on the sessional orders. Some significant and welcome changes to the sessional orders have been put forward; however, others can be improved on. Therefore I will move a reasoned amendment.
Congratulations, Speaker, on your appointment. I will first say how honoured I am to be here as the member for Prahran, and how proud I am to be one of the first-ever Greens elected to the Legislative Assembly, alongside the member for Melbourne. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land of the Prahran electorate and on which this Parliament sits, the Boon Wurrung and members of the Kulin nation, and I pay my respects to their elders past and present.
