Speeches from politicians in vic

  • This morning a large number of Melbourne cyclists gathered on the steps of Parliament House in support of the 'A Metre Matters' legislation. I would like to congratulate my colleague, Samantha Dunn, and her office on their fantastic work on the A Metre Matters campaign, which culminated in the Road Safety Road Rules 2009 (Overtaking Bicycles) Bill 2015, which Ms Dunn herself described as a catchy title.
  • The Greens also will support the motion put forward by Ms Wooldridge this morning. As is well known, the Greens have put forward many documents motions over our time here and generally would support documents motions put forward by other members of the Council and other parties because we believe that government needs to be much more open and transparent than it is.
  • I am happy to rise today to speak on the Creative Victoria Bill 2016. The bill will be supported by the Greens. It does a number of things, including recognising principles relating to the arts and creative industries in Victoria.
  • My constituency question is for the Minister for Planning. The community of St Kilda and beyond is extremely concerned about the apparent imminent demolition of the Greyhound Hotel.
  • In light of recent media reports that thousands of Australians have downloaded instructions to make a 3D printed gun, what action will the Government take to prevent use or possession of a digital blueprint for the manufacture of a 3D printed gun.
  • What research has the Department undertaken regarding the further study and employment outcomes of home schooled children?
  • The NorthWest Rail Alliance has collected over 7000 signatures in six weeks in Mildura in support of reinstating passenger rail services to that city...
  • I commend the efforts of my colleagues, Greens MPs and Greens councillors in Victoria, who were out last week talking to commuters about the troubles they are facing on our public transport system.
  • In terms of this particular inquiry I think it is important to note that as part of the inquiry into ridesourcing services there were of course the issues around compensation for taxi licences that played a part in that inquiry.
  • I move: That the report be taken into consideration on the next day of meeting.
  • I rise to speak on the Victorian Planning Authority Bill 2016
  • I rise to speak on the Victorian Planning Authority Bill 2016
  • I would like to talk today about public transport. I commend the efforts of my colleagues, Greens MPs and Greens councillors in Victoria, who were out last week talking to commuters about the troubles they are facing on our public transport system.
  • On a point of order, President, yesterday I asked the Minister for Agriculture a question about children on the wetlands during the duck shooting season. The minister was good enough to supply an answer as required by you, and that answer implies that children under 12 years old should not be on the wetlands.
  • The Greens recognise the critical importance of universal access to high-quality, affordable child care, and we strongly support efforts to continually professionalise and increase access to child care. A substantial number of amendments within the bill are aimed at improving regulation and quality of the family day care system. This component of child care is one that has grown substantially over the last 10 years in a number of areas.
  • Next week the noise and pollution of Melbourne's grand prix will descend on the city, along with declining numbers of sports tourists injecting an unconfirmed sum of money into the Victorian economy with dubious benefits. As tradition apparently dictates, grid girls will meet and greet fans and pose for photographs.
