PARLIAMENT

Adjournment: Cycling infrastructure

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and the action I seek is that the minister invest more in cycling infrastructure. When it comes to bikes, last week's budget was the same old news: stuff-all for cyclists yet again. Less than 1 per cent...


Members Statement: Prahran High School

Mr HIBBINS — There is a lot of excitement in our community as progress toward the opening of the new Prahran high school continues. The new school has come a long way in the last four years, from securing a location and getting the extra funding required to construction, which is now...



Members Statement: City Basketball League

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to congratulate the Prahran basketball team, who were grand finalists in the recent City Basketball League finals.

Adjournment matter: South Yarra railway station

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Public Transport, and as this is the last sitting week before this year's budget is handed down in May, the action I am seeking from the minister is to finally fund an upgrade to South Yarra station in this year's...


Questions without notice: Member's conduct

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My question is to the Premier. Premier, Victorians are rightly fed up with the seemingly endless series of scandals involving Labor and Liberal politicians. Honourable members interjecting. The SPEAKER — Order! The house will come to order. The member for Prahran, in silence. Mr HIBBINS — In just this term of Parliament...



Question without Notice: Duck Hunting Season

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran)  — My question is to the Premier. Premier, the recent Pegasus Economics review of the Game Management Authority (GMA) found that breaches of hunting laws during duck season are widespread and commonplace and that the GMA was incapable of enforcing those laws. Given your regulator's own incompetence, will you...


Constituency question: Prahran pedestrian safety

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and I ask: when will the government start taking action to improve pedestrian safety in the Prahran electorate? Safer pedestrian crossings are absolutely essential to the livability of our community, and over the past few months the...

This is a bill that makes a number of changes to Victoria's integrity system, most significantly around protected disclosures but also to the powers...


Members Statement - South Yarra Helipad

Sam HIBBINS (Prahran) — If South Yarra was to get a helipad built by a private developer to serve a few people who live in penthouse apartments before its overcrowded train station, used by thousands, got an upgrade, it would represent much that is wrong with our state's planning system, where population grows,...
