MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to make some comments on the Adoption Amendment (Adoption by Same-Sex Couples) Bill 2015 with regard to the amendment from the Legislative Council. As hard as it will be to demonstrate, I actually am on the same side of this debate as the member for Eltham. I am certainly not on the same side of this debate as the...

MORRIS (Mornington) — This morning I want to address the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee report on the 2015–16 budget estimates, which was tabled in the house last month. The report includes 101 findings and some 68 recommendations. I will concentrate on a selection of those, starting with asset investment, which perhaps is topical, given t...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to rise this morning to make some comments on the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee's Report on the 2015–16 Budget Estimates. This is the 301st report released by the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee or its predecessors since 1895, and this year marks 120 years of those committees. At the back of t...

MORRIS (Mornington) — Today we observe the first anniversary of the election of the Andrews government, and it is certainly no celebration, with almost $1 billion to not build a desperately needed road; a $286 million budget deficit — the first in a generation; net debt up by $673 million since 1 July, on top of a $1.1 billion hike in the year to 3...

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.

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...
