Speeches from politicians in vic

  • Ms PENNICUIK (Southern Metropolitan) — I am pleased to speak on the motion that Mr Davis has put forward today with regard to the Markham estate, which is a motion in four parts. In essence the motion is about the lack of consultation with regard to the proposed redevelopment by Places Victoria — I presume now by Development Victoria; the privatisation of part of that public estate at this site in Ashburton; and that the City of Boroondara is best placed to be and should be the responsible authority for any planning decisions affecting the development of the Markham estate.
  • PENNICUIK (Southern Metropolitan) — On 2 May Mr Purcell made a members statement in support of the Warrnambool May Racing Carnival, a three-day racing carnival in which he said the Grand Annual Steeplechase, which is over 5500 metres and has a world record 33 jumps, is a highlight. I have to disagree with Mr Purcell; I find that type of race to be nothing short of animal abuse.

  • 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.
