Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to rise on behalf of the coalition to open debate on the Transport Accident Amendment Bill 2015. Before I get to my commentary on the bill I first of all want to acknowledge the briefing that was provided by the minister's staff and commission staff a couple of weeks ago, which was comprehensive and informative...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to have the opportunity to make some brief comments on the bill before the house. I think it is important that I do, as the Liberal Party has determined that members will have a free vote. While this bill is about access, it is also inextricably about the issue of abortion. Back in 2008 I was very pleased to su...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I rise to make some comment on the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee report 3 of the 58th Parliament entitled Report of the Investigation into Allegations made against the Auditor General, which the chair of the committee, the member for Essendon, tabled yesterday. As we all know, this is not a run of the mill report ...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to open the contributions on behalf of the opposition on the Local Government Amendment (Fair Go Rates) Bill 2015. Unfortunately I am a little bit disappointed, partly on a matter of substance and partly not so much. The ‘not so much’ is that we seem to have moved to a point where we now have sloganeering in th...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Labor announced its level crossing removal program with great fanfare. Unfortunately it seems that these upgrades are destined to go the way of every major project associated with the ALP. Certainly it has not been a great start for the works on the Frankston line. Last Friday morning commuters were confronted with the news...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Last Sunday I had the great pleasure of attending a service to mark the 150th anniversary of the foundation of St James the Less Anglican Church in Mount Eliza. The service was in the new church, but the little church, as it is known, is attached to the new church and was a tangible reminder of an earlier time.Anglican Arch...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — The reform proposed by the bill is overdue, and some might say a very long time overdue. I am certainly pleased to see that the matter is now before the house. However, I am not pleased — in fact I am absolutely disgusted — by the form in which the Premier and his Minister for Equality have prepared the bill for the house t...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — There is nothing like a quick contribution!This morning I want to again refer to the alert report of the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee tabled in the house in June. The final report is not yet tabled, but without breaching any committee confidences I am certain it is not far away. In the interim, we have the transc...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to have the opportunity to make some comments on the Justice Legislation Amendment (Police Custody Office) Bill 2015. This bill creates a mechanism to introduce civilian police custody persons. The approach is essentially agreed on. Both the government and the opposition had a view on this matter going into the...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to support the Victims of Crime Commissioner Bill 2015. This is a bill of barely 25 pages. It is one of those rare bills that will, upon its passage — and I am sure it will have a successful passage — give effect to a new principal act. That does not happen very often. It is succinct in form but substantial in ...
