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 ...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — It is a pleasure to rise again this afternoon to address the House Contracts Guarantee Repeal Bill 2016, and I say at the outset that it will not be a long running contribution.What is before the house in the context of this bill is relatively straightforward. It is, as the title suggests, simply repealing an act that has n...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — This year’s budget season has brought the unwanted news that the Andrews government intends to sacrifice the Country Fire Authority (CFA) to the United Firefighters Union. This is no ordinary Labor sop handed to its union mates. This is a deal the like of which we have not seen since the days before the Labor split. This is...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Broken down, dysfunctional — does anything sound familiar? It does sound horribly like the government of the state of Victoria, I have got to say. I must also say I was also pleased to hear that the minister has a renewed faith in consultation, something that was clearly absent on Tuesday. On Tuesday no public consultation ...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Normally it is a pleasure to rise to speak on a bill; not so much in this case. I would have to say that I agree with one line out of the second reading speech, and that line appears on the third page. The words are:This is an unacceptable situation for the people of Greater Geelong.That is exactly the case. This is a total...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — This process is a complete farce. In moving this motion the minister had ample opportunity to outline to the house why she believes it only requires 21⁄2 hours debate. She had opportunity, but there was not one word about that. There was simply the straight motion: this is what I want. There was no reason given as to why th...
