Speeches from politicians in vic

  • Lidia Thorpe celebrates the Darebin Falcons as one of Victoria's most successful women's sports clubs.
  • My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. It concerns a new light sequence at the left turn from Alexandra Avenue into Swan Street at the pedestrian crossing, heading west.
  • I am very pleased to rise to speak to the Bail Amendment (Stage Two) Bill 2017. The Parliament dealt with the Bail Amendment (Stage One) Bill 2017 earlier this year, and the provisions of that bill have not come into operation. In fact they are just languishing in a long list at the end of the Bail Act 1977, waiting for 1 July. I say that because the government has engaged in something I think is a less than perfect process with regard to these bail amendments.
  • On Saturday, 17 February, I attended a public gathering organised by the Elsternwick Park Coalition.
  • My question is for the Minister for Agriculture, and it is a follow-up question to my question last week with regard to compliance and enforcement of the duck shooting regulations.
  • I am pleased to speak today on the Justice Legislation Amendment (Victims) Bill 2017. This is an omnibus bill which makes a number of amendments to a number of acts, chiefly the Crimes Act 1958, the Sentencing Act 1991, the Criminal Procedure Act 2009 and the Victims of Crime Assistance Act 1996.
  • My constituency question this afternoon is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and it is in regard to the zebra crossing at the corner of Kings Way and Park Street in South Melbourne.
  • It is a pleasure to rise to speak on this bill that we have been anticipating for such a long time, because while it may seem like a very simple bill, it will affect many people's lives and in fact make the process of making statutory declarations, for example, much easier by making it easier for people to have access to persons who can witness them, particularly for those people who live in rural and regional areas.
  • Lidia Thorpe questions the Government over slow progress on rental reform laws
  • Lidia Thorpe calls for the Victorian Government to Change the Date of Australia Day and enter into Clan based Treaties.
  • My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change and relates to the national heritage listing nomination for Beaumaris Bay.
  • My question is for the Minister for Agriculture. Yesterday amendments to the wildlife regulations were tabled, and you answered questions from Mr Young regarding some of these changes.
  • I wish to pay tribute to Muriel Rose Craddock, who died on 6 December 2017 aged 105. In 1965 Muriel, her husband Les and daughter Kay opened the Essendon Treasure Chest, selling second-hand books and bric-a-brac.
  • The Greens would also like to support the motion of condolence moved by the Leader of the Government for the death of the Honourable Arthur Andrew McCutcheon on 16 December 2017. By any measure Andrew McCutcheon led a very full and varied life, training in architecture and theology, travelling the world before he became a Methodist minister, looking for better ways to address poverty and powerlessness.
  • I am very pleased to speak this evening on the Domestic Animals Amendment (Puppy Farms and Pet Shops) Bill 2016. It has been a longstanding Greens policy to ban puppy farms and to ban the sale of animals from pet shops. In the past the Greens have been criticised for this policy, but today we have before us a bill that largely gives effect to these longstanding policies of the Greens.
