Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — It is a pleasure to rise to address the Treasury and Finance Legislation Amendment Bill 2016. Although to be honest about it, and I am not wishing to nitpick, I am not sure that this has much to do with either Treasury or Finance except that it is of course administered by the Minister for Finance, but certainly not in the ...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — It is a pleasure to rise again this afternoon to address the House Contracts Guarantee Repeal Bill 2016, and I say at the outset that it will not be a long running contribution.What is before the house in the context of this bill is relatively straightforward. It is, as the title suggests, simply repealing an act that has n...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — This year’s budget season has brought the unwanted news that the Andrews government intends to sacrifice the Country Fire Authority (CFA) to the United Firefighters Union. This is no ordinary Labor sop handed to its union mates. This is a deal the like of which we have not seen since the days before the Labor split. This is...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Broken down, dysfunctional — does anything sound familiar? It does sound horribly like the government of the state of Victoria, I have got to say. I must also say I was also pleased to hear that the minister has a renewed faith in consultation, something that was clearly absent on Tuesday. On Tuesday no public consultation ...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Normally it is a pleasure to rise to speak on a bill; not so much in this case. I would have to say that I agree with one line out of the second reading speech, and that line appears on the third page. The words are:This is an unacceptable situation for the people of Greater Geelong.That is exactly the case. This is a total...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — This process is a complete farce. In moving this motion the minister had ample opportunity to outline to the house why she believes it only requires 21⁄2 hours debate. She had opportunity, but there was not one word about that. There was simply the straight motion: this is what I want. There was no reason given as to why th...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — That was a very good example of the adage ‘never let the facts get in the way of the argument’. That was certainly one of the lighter weight contributions I have heard in this place. I must say I do have a sense of deja vu because we were debating a similar bill — but in fact a much better bill than this, on this very subje...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to make some comments on the Integrity and Accountability Legislation Amendment (A Stronger System) Bill 2015. I was interested to hear the member for Essendon observe that this is about removing disincentives for the private sector to deal with government, and I am tempted to ask how you do that by rippin...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — The time has come for the Andrews government to live up to its rhetoric on ambulance services and specifically to fund the construction of a new ambulance station at Bentons Road, Mount Martha. The government has been big on talk about ambulance services, but it just has not delivered. If you do not live in the city, you do...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — My question is for the Minister for Education. The population of the Mornington Peninsula continues to rise, and that growth is particularly apparent in rising numbers of both primary and secondary students. This year Balcombe Grammar School has seen a significant increase in the number of students using the bus system to t...
