PARLIAMENT

Adjournment: Port Phillip EcoCentre

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) : My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, and the action I seek is for the minister to provide the funding required to support the Port Phillip EcoCentre redevelopment. The Port Phillip EcoCentre is a leading community-managed organisation led by a dedicated...


Matters of Public Importance - Homelessness and Public Housing

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) : Last week Victorians shivered through a week of severe cold. It also happened to be Homelessness Week. Just think what that week would have been like for people who do not have safe places to call home. The Greens put forward this matter of public importance today...



Members Statement: Container Deposit Scheme

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) : I rise to urge the government to implement a bottles and cans refund scheme in Victoria. Victoria is now the only state or territory not to have put in place or planned to put in place a refund scheme. Why is Victoria lagging on such an important...


Single Use Plastics Ban - Environment Protection Amendment Bill 2019

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) : I rise to speak on the Environment Protection Amendment Bill 2019, which is a bill to ban certain single-use plastic bags here in Victoria. This is a bill that the Greens strongly support. In fact it is something that my Greens colleagues and I have been pushing...



Adjournment: Prahran Public Housing Upgrade

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) :  My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Housing, and the action I seek is for the minister to upgrade public housing estates in the Prahran electorate, of which there are several in South Yarra, Prahran, St Kilda and Windsor—all around the Prahran electorate, including building new...


Budget Reply 2019-2020

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): I rise on behalf of the Greens to respond to the budget. This budget really is the Premier’s and the government’s missed moment, their missed moment to hand down a budget that would put our climate and our environment at its heart. It is not a budget that...



Constituency questions: South Yarra Station Draft Masterplan

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) : My constituency question is for the Minister for Transport Infrastructure, and I ask again: what is the latest information and time line on the South Yarra station upgrade and master plan? In response to my previous question the minister stated that work would commence this year and...


Metropolitan train and tram services

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) : My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Public Transport. The action I seek is for the minister to run metropolitan trains and trams at least every 10 minutes from 6.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m., seven days a week. That would create turn-up-and-go train and tram...



Member Statement: Waste & Recycling Management

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) – I rise to express my disappointment in the failure of the government to use the budget to fix the waste crisis. This is what the government could do now: stand up to Coca-Cola and the beverage industry and implement a container deposit scheme, which has the overwhelming...


Native Forest Logging

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) In November 2016 members of the Forestry Industry Taskforce wrote to the Premier stating a desire to work with the Premier and the government. However, the Premier, I am led to believe, never responded. Isn’t it true that the taskforce did reach consensus and did want to...
