Parliament

Former deputy commissioner of police: meeting

I raise a matter for the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, and the action I seek is that he immediately give a full explanation to this house of the contradictions arising out of the Office of Police Integrity's (OPI) Crossing the Line report. This is his final opportunity this sitting week to come clean and tell the truth.

Puffing Billy: funding

I raise a matter for the Minister for Tourism and Major Events. The action I seek is that the minister commit to a $15 million injection urgently required by Puffing Billy, one of our greatest and most beloved tourist icons.

Sherbrooke Community School: new building

On Monday I was delighted to officially open Sherbrooke Community School's outstanding new primary building or, as it has already been affectionately nicknamed, 'little land'.

Schools: Boronia K-12 project

I raise for the Minister for Education a matter in relation to stage 2 funding for the Boronia K-12 project.

Community safety: government initiatives

I want to get one thing straight, and it is a fact that the Minister for Police and Emergency Services assiduously avoids acknowledging: the 1700 new police are Labor's police.

Montrose Football Club: achievements

After the disappointment of the Hawks going down last Friday night, I put on my red and blue scarf to cheer on Montrose in the second division Eastern Football League (EFL) grand final on Saturday.

Road safety: government performance

Today I grieve for road safety in Victoria and the complete lack of attention by this government on this most vital issue.

Government: achievements

When you have a self-indulgent motion like this before you, the first thing you do is you refer to original promises and test the claim in the MPI.

Police: government performance

I rise to make a contribution to the grievance debate, and I join with the Leader of the Opposition and the Deputy Leader of the Opposition in focusing on Victoria Police.

Boronia Heights Primary School: upgrade

I raise a matter for the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is that he ensure that planning for a major upgrade at Boronia Heights Primary School, which was well under way last year, resume immediately.
