  • On 26 August I was heartwarmed and very excited to attend the Equal Love marriage equality rally and mass illegal wedding in Melbourne. I have attended these rallies and illegal weddings since they first started following the change of the Marriage Act 1961 by the Howard government in 2004. It was just fantastic to see tens of thousands of people pack out the streets of Melbourne.
  • I rise this evening to speak to the Local Government (Central Goldfields Shire Council) Bill 2017.

I was disturbed to hear recent comments from the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne, Denis Hart, expressing a desire to use gaps and exemptions in the law provided to religious organisations to sack gay and lesbian teachers and to refuse to report disclosures of child sexual abuse that have been received during confession.
  • I am pleased to rise to speak on the Jury Directions and Other Acts Amendments Bill 2017. This bill amends the Jury Directions Act 2015 and makes related amendments to other acts, including the Criminal Procedure Act 2009 and the Juries Act 2000.
  • The Justice Legislation Amendment (Court Security, Juries and Other Matters) Bill 2017 is an omnibus bill which makes a range of amendments to various acts in the justice and regulation portfolio, including providing for a new security model for the Victorian courts and tribunals with the use of private security officers, appointing them as authorised officers with expanded powers.
