Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — The purpose of the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Amendment Bill 2016 is of course to remove the requirement for sex affirmation surgery, to remove the requirement to be unmarried and to allow an application to alter a birth certificate on behalf of a child.

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I do approach this debate with a sense of déjà vu. Yet again we are seeing the ALP in tandem with the Greens, despite the lovers tiff we heard earlier, using their parliamentary numbers to prosecute a war on individuals whose religious position does not accord with their own. Again we have before the house a bill to impleme...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) - I raise a matter this evening for the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change.

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — What an absolute shambles! This should have been a relatively straightforward process, but what we have had is a comprehensive and absolute failure in what should have been a simple administrative process, and now we have to get a bill through and get it through reasonably quickly in order to sort out the problem and clean ...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the most significant Australian military engagement of the Vietnam War — the Battle of Long Tan.

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I am pleased to rise on this alleged matter of public importance (MPI), but before I address that, can I just mention a matter of personal importance: I had the pleasure of lunching with my mother today, Dorothy Morris, on the occasion of her 90th birthday. I certainly wish her many happy returns, as I am sure do all member...

Mr MORRIS — On another, less happy matter, I condemn the Andrews government, particularly the Premier, for its treatment of our Country Fire Authority (CFA) volunteers. Perhaps the Premier has forgotten Black Saturday and forgotten Ash Wednesday. In his reckless attempt to bulldoze through union control the Premier has demonstrated his contempt for...

Deputy Speake...

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — I can see why the government only wanted to have a couple of hours debate on this bill, because clearly its backbenchers do not have a clue what it is about. They seem to think it is about expenditure rather than taxes. One thing the Labor Party has never understood, and clearly it will never learn, is you cannot tax your w...

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...
