Speeches from politicians in vic

  • My question is for the Minister for Training and Skills. I have been contacted by a student at Sage Institute of Education who has been studying for a diploma of education and care, whose course is due to finish on 28 February and who has completed placements outside the institute. As you would know, Minister, the administrator has been appointed for Sage Institute, which runs courses in aged care, education, massage, child care and fitness. My constituent is concerned that if she is unable to complete her course, the fees that she has paid will have been wasted and she will have no qualification to show for the year that she has spent studying.
  • Has the minister requested that VicForests undertake an extensive survey of Leadbeater's possum habitat even though logging has commenced at the Blue Vein coupe...
  • Today I will be talking about the ownership of public transport in Melbourne...
  • Knox City Council tabled at its council meeting a report by an independent planning panel that recommended building heights in the town of Upper Ferntree Gully should be mandatory and no more than two storeys high...
  • Has the Minister requested that VicForests assess the damage to tourism and Leadbeater’s possum habitat by logging Blue Vein coupe, which is adjacent to the 350 year old, 76 metre high, 15.7 metre girth Ada tree, which, as one of the largest living things in the world, is a major tourist attraction in the Yarra Ranges and Baw Baw?
  • It is so very disappointing that on 3 January the government announced that a full, 12-week, duck shooting season will go ahead this year with no reduction in bag limits and no restrictions on so-called game species that can be shot, except to exclude the blue-winged shoveler due to 'continued low numbers'.
  • The Victorian Greens are proud to submit this motion today. Electric propulsion is arguably the greatest innovation in automobiles since the mass manufacture of the Model T Ford, and now is the time to explore how the State Government should be shepherding a transition of Victoria’s vehicle fleet from fossil fuels to electric. There have been major issues with the dependence on internal combustion engines for powering vehicles. The damage done to human health, the environment, and the amenity of our cities by internal combustion engines in automobiles has been huge.

  • Colleen Hartland urges the Victorian Labor Government to agree to a supervised injecting room in Richmond.
  • Ms Pennicuik introduced a bill for an act to provide that a person's conviction for certain offences is spent if the person completes a period of crime-free behaviour, to prohibit the unlawful disclosure of a person's spent record, to prohibit the taking into account of a person's spent conviction, to make consequential amendments to certain other acts, and for other purposes.
  • President, on behalf of my Greens party colleagues I would like to wish all members and your good self an enjoyable summer break. We all need the opportunity to relax and recharge. We are human beings just like anybody else, despite what some people might think of us or some of us might think about each other.
  • The Greens will support this motion. We appreciate that the opposition has been pursuing these issues for some time, I believe through a number of different mechanisms of the house. Documents motions are an appropriate way for the house to obtain information from the government, and that is after all one of the main purposes of this house existing.
  • The Greens will support this bill. We also support the creation of a centralised Victorian Housing Register for the benefit of those seeking affordable housing — something that we were also promoting as policy before the 2014 state election. We desire this to make it fairer for everyone. People will not have to shop around and apply for different systems to get a place in affordable housing.
  • I rise to speak on the interim report from the environment and planning committee on the inquiry into fire season preparedness...
