Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the most significant Australian military engagement of the Vietnam War — the Battle of Long Tan. By 1966 the war was rapidly escalating. Australian involvement had been initiated in August 1962 with a team of 30 military advisors, and by 1965 ground troops were engaged. Career soldiers...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to rise on this alleged matter of public importance (MPI), but before I address that, can I just mention a matter of personal importance: I had the pleasure of lunching with my mother today, Dorothy Morris, on the occasion of her 90th birthday. I certainly wish her many happy returns, as I am sure do all member...

Mr MORRIS — On another, less happy matter, I condemn the Andrews government, particularly the Premier, for its treatment of our Country Fire Authority (CFA) volunteers. Perhaps the Premier has forgotten Black Saturday and forgotten Ash Wednesday. In his reckless attempt to bulldoze through union control the Premier has demonstrated his contempt for...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I raise a matter this evening for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and the action I am seeking from the minister is that he direct VicRoads to undertake such works as are necessary to resolve the significant safety issues that exist at the intersection of Nepean Highway and Forest Drive in Mount Martha. Deputy Speake...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I can see why the government only wanted to have a couple of hours debate on this bill, because clearly its backbenchers do not have a clue what it is about. They seem to think it is about expenditure rather than taxes. One thing the Labor Party has never understood, and clearly it will never learn, is you cannot tax your w...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I recently had the pleasure of again joining the Mornington Country Fire Authority (CFA) brigade for its annual dinner. The evening met the brigade’s usual high standard and showcased the tremendous work that dedicated band of volunteers and career firefighters deliver for the benefit of my community. A particular highlight...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I rise this morning to make some comments on the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee report on the 2013–14 and 2014–15 financial and performance outcomes. I spoke for 5 minutes, as the segment allows, during the last sitting week and I just want to pick up where I left off then and refer to some more recommendations. Un...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to rise to speak on this take note motion and, probably more importantly, to support the sentiment of the motion that was moved earlier in the afternoon by the Premier. Had I been drafting the motion, I probably would have gone a bit further, that is only to the extent I recall it because unfortunately the text...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — There seems to be a little bit of confusion.The Attorney General just repeated again that this is a motion about requiring the Leader of the Opposition as the custodian of the documents to hand them over. Presumably if that was the case, the motion would have in fact named the Leader of the Opposition and required him to ha...

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 ...
