Medical Treatment Planning and Decisions Bill

Mr. HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to speak on behalf of the Greens for the Medical Treatment Planning and Decisions Bill 2016. The Greens support the bill because we believe there is a clear need for these laws to come into place, particularly around a person's end of life, to create...

LGBTI equality

Mr Hibbins (Prahran) — As it is mental health week, it is time now for the Prime Minister to abandon the proposed marriage equality plebiscite. One of the key reasons for opposing this plebiscite is the effect that it will have on the mental health of LGBTI Australians, particularly young people,...

Waste Management

Mr Hibbins — I would like to thank all residents who visited my stall at the Spring into Gardening fair at Victoria Gardens in Prahran to share with me their ideas for the Prahran electorate. There is so much more Victoria can do in regard to recycling and reducing waste,...

PARLIAMENT

Prahran electorate

Mr Hibbins (Prahran) — My constituency question is for the Minister for Public Transport. I ask: does the government have a plan to improve public transport along the Punt Road corridor? The best way to increase capacity and reduce traffic along Punt Road is through better public transport, not through an...

PARLIAMENT

Legislative Council vacancy

Coal-fired Power Stations

Mr Hibbins (Prahran) — The Victorian government continues to shirk addressing the issue of phasing out coal-fired power stations.
