Local Scouts

10 June, 2015

The issue I raise today is for the attention of the Minister for Youth Affairs, and the action I seek is for her to fund the scout hall for the 1st Warrandyte/Park Orchards scouts at Stiggants Reserve in Warrandyte. I am very proud to have been the Minister for Youth Affairs and to have been part of the only government in this country that supported scouts to the degree that our government did. Ov...  Read More

Warrandyte State Park

6 May, 2015

I rise today to highlight to the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water an important opportunity that exists in relation to the Warrandyte State Park. Recently a parcel of 2.5 hectares of private land abutting the park has become available for sale. This land at 133 Webb Street in Warrandyte has been in the hands of what I understand to have been absentee owners, and as such it ha...  Read More

Road Safety Week

6 May, 2015

I rise on behalf of the coalition to support Road Safety Week. Road Safety Week is a global initiative and one that Victoria as a community has most certainly embraced. Road safety is one area that affects all of us and all of our constituents. It should be an ongoing concern for everyone in this Parliament and everyone in the community. With the exception of freak medical events, every death on ...  Read More

Mullum Mullum Creek Trail

15 April, 2015

I rise with a request for funding from the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water so that the final stage of the Mullum Mullum Creek Trail can be completed. This funding will see the final 1.3-kilometre gap filled in what is a 42-kilometre off-road circuit of shared paths linking a significant part of Manningham and connecting to the Main Yarra and EastLink trails. The final section jo...  Read More

Cattle Grazing

15 April, 2015

It is a pleasure to rise today and speak on the National Parks Amendment (Prohibiting Cattle Grazing) Bill 2015. When we come into this place, when our communities send us to this place, they charge us with the very high responsibility of responding to our individual communities and representing them here in this place and advocating for their issues. Most people in this place take that responsibi...  Read More

Park Orchards Football Club

17 March, 2015

I rise with a request that the Minister for Sport recognise the history of the Park Orchards Football Club and the importance of local grassroots football and in doing so commit funding for the club's rooms at its home ground at Domeney Reserve in Park Orchards. The Park Orchards Football Club is central to the Park Orchards community. It is a place where much of the community congregates. At any...  Read More

Local Scouts and Guides

17 March, 2015

I wish to raise an important matter for the Minister for Youth Affairs regarding support for local cubs and scouts in my electorate. The former coalition government was a great supporter of Victoria's scouts and guides. With a $5 million investment, dozens of scout and guide halls were refurbished and renovated and support was given to train leaders and to encourage participation by young peo...  Read More

Child Safe Schools

17 March, 2015

I rise to speak on this very important bill, the Education and Training Reform Amendment (Child Safe Schools) Bill 2015. At the outset I advise that I am very pleased to see that the government has introduced this bill and the Limitation of Actions Amendment (Child Abuse) Bill 2015, which is also on the government business program. Labor in opposition made it very clear that it would not make any ...  Read More

Government Performance

26 February, 2015

The Andrews government, in just a few short months, has shown Victorians that it is a government with a lack of vision, a lack of a plan and a willingness to use spin over substance. This is the Labor hallmark. In just a few short months we have heard about a shovel-ready project that is anything but, a Metro rail plan that cannot be paid for and the removal of level crossings that were planned an...  Read More

Repeal of the Move On Laws

25 February, 2015

I rise to speak on the Summary Offences Amendment (Move-on Laws) Bill 2015. If we ever needed a bill to show how clearly the Premier is beholden to the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union, this is it. This bill is about paying the piper, about payback for union support, and it shows that the Premier is tightly within union grasp. With this bill Victorians can see who is actually in cha...  Read More

Infrastructure Projects

25 February, 2015

It gives me pleasure to rise on this matter of public importance. It is incredibly disappointing to have to rise today to highlight the growing list of promises made by this government to the people of Victoria that it has subsequently broken. Moreover, it is disappointing that these promises have been broken with such speed. It has only been a couple of months since the then opposition leader, no...  Read More

Warrandyte Bridge

24 February, 2015

I raise a very important issue for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety with regard to traffic congestion and bushfire safety in my electorate. The former government committed to a multi-agency review of how roads in Warrandyte, and particularly Warrandyte Bridge, would cope in the event of an emergency evacuation. In addition there was a commitment for VicRoads to investigate longer term soluti...  Read More

Gaming Licenses

24 February, 2015

My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation. I request that the minister engage with the Tatts Group with regard to increasing flexibility in its franchise agreements. The Victorian government has awarded Tattersall's with the licence to sell lottery products in Victoria. In doing so, it is important that the government stand up for the newsagents a...  Read More

Address in Reply

12 February, 2015

It is my pleasure to rise to make my address-in-reply to the Governor's speech that was made at the beginning of the 58th Parliament. It is an honour and a privilege to have been elected by the people of Warrandyte for a third time. Serving here is indeed a privilege. We have heard a number of new members talk about the honour they have felt on being elected to this place for the first time. ...  Read More

Grievance Debate

11 February, 2015

It is interesting to hear the arrogance drip from the mouth of the Minister for Emergency Services, the member for Brunswick. Clearly she has disregarded the votes of those many Victorians who voted for Liberal and Nationals members. According to those opposite, clearly those voters are wrong. I grieve for the people of Victoria who have realised, just after 10 weeks of an Andrews government...  Read More
