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 ...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I too wish to address the 2015–16 estimates hearings alert report, but perhaps unlike the member for Broadmeadows, I intend to refer to the subject matter of the report. The report is an alert report and, as is noted, needs to be read in conjunction with the transcripts from the hearings that were conducted back in May, wit...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I raise an issue for the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water regarding the Beleura Hill coastal track. The action I am seeking is that the minister provide funding through her department to undertake sufficient works to stabilise the path, repair damage from a landslip and get the track open and functioning a...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Last week I received a letter from the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. Apparently the letter was signed on 24 September and related to a constituent matter. I thank the minister for his response to my correspondence, which was originally directed to VicRoads, but I do wonder whether the minister is receiving advice from...

MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to rise to speak on the Local Government Amendment (Improved Governance) Bill 2015. This bill covers a range of issues, starting with the role of the mayor and councillors. A substantial slab of it is about codes of conduct and how they are interpreted and enforced. The bill introduces a definition for the role of...

MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to rise this morning to comment on the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee hearings alert report, which was tabled in the house in May of this year. The budget estimates hearings were comprised of 41 separate events, and there were some 650 pages of transcript. Regrettably, though, I have to say that the final...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Before the 2014 election the Premier promised 100 000 full time jobs within two years. With nine months gone, that target translates to 37 000 plus new jobs to date. How is it going? Not too well. Full time jobs have gone backwards, with 7800 lost on the Premier’s watch. That is not a surprising result when you consider the...
