Mr MORRIS (Mornington) (10:36:55) — I too, like many other members this morning, wish to make some remarks on the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee report tabled yesterday. Indeed, this was my seventh estimates process. I must say I think it is still a useful process despite a degree of dumbing down of some of the operations of the committee ...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to rise to make what I anticipate will be some relatively brief comments about the Compensation Legislation Amendment Bill 2017. While there are two substantive matters that are affected by the bill, it is pretty straightforward. I think there are only eight clauses in the entire bill. Essentially the first im...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) - I raise a question for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, in particular with regard to Mornington-Tyabb Road running between the Nepean Highway and Peninsula Link, although there are two distinct sections, essentially from Nepean Highway to Moorooduc Highway and then from Moorooduc Highway to Peninsula Link.

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) - My question is for the Treasurer. On 16 November last the Minister for Water announced the continuation of the ferry service from Portarlington to Docklands. Despite making the announcement the minister has indicated in response to a question that this is not a matter for her but a matter for the Treasurer. This year's budg...

Mr MORRIS — The debate on the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2017 is not unprecedented; it is certainly unusual. It is a significant event in the life of this Parliament, and if the bill passes, it will be a significant event in the history of the state. For some members this is an opportunity to see how a Westminster Parliament is actually supposed...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington)—I am pleased to join the debate on this renewable energy bill. I might just comment in passing that in fact the abbreviation ‘NB’ does not refer to ‘note before’. It refers to ‘nota bene’ which, as you indicate Acting Speaker McGuire you appreciate, as do I, means ‘note well’, a translation from the Latin. I think we should c...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington)—I rise this afternoonto mark the passing of Frank Winter, who sadly lost his battle for life in August. Frank was a Liberal stalwart in the best sense of the word. If there was a job to be done, Frank was not only always available but he was front and centre in any of the myriad tasks that are part and parcel of winning and h...

MR MORRIS (Mornington) — The abuse of prescription drugs is of coursenot a new problem. Indeed it was one of the very first issues that I had toconfront as a new member of Parliament, and I am sure it had been going on fordecades, if not centuries, before that.  Too many people think thatif a drug is prescribed, it is safe, and of co...
