2 *    MR HALL — To move —
        That this House —
        (1) notes the Brumby Government's extreme hypocrisy in its criticism of the previous
              Government's rationalisation of schools across the State, when it has itself closed or
              merged more than 135 primary and secondary schools since 1999, including —

       To take precedence over all other General Business pursuant to an Order of the Council on 28 July

             (i)   6 schools closed or merged in the Gippsland region since 2005; and
       (2) further notes the Brumby Government has gagged school principals from speaking on
             mergers, closures and school infrastructure issues and therefore calls on the
             Government to ensure that —
             (a) any proposed or future school closures or mergers only occur with the full and
                   genuine support of school communities;
             (b) a publicly accessible code of practice be developed with provisions that —
                   (i)   the principals and school councils must be notified in writing by the
                         Department of Education and Early Childhood Development of any
                         proposed mergers or closures that will affect their school;

                         publicly on any proposed merger or closure;
                   (iv) no Department official may coerce or threaten schools involved in merger
                         or closure discussions with threats of reduced funding or limited access to
                         resources; and
                   (v) once a decision has been made by a school council a “cooling off” period of

3 *   MR D.M. DAVIS — To move —
       That this House —
       (1) expresses its concern at the poor performance of the Victorian public hospital system
             reflected in the Your Hospitals, July to December 2008 report where only four of nine
             key performance targets were achieved;
       (2) believes the Brumby Labor Government should release in full the waiting list figures not
             made public as part of that report, including any assessments of their veracity, and
             particularly the data relating to the Royal Women’s Hospital held back from the report;
             and
       (3) further believes that the full results of spot audits of three hospitals — the Mercy
             Hospital at Werribee, Box Hill Hospital and the Austin Hospital, should be released in
             full to the Victorian community.
       [Notice given on 28 July 2009 — Listed for 1 day].

4      MR O’DONOHUE — To move —
       That this House —
       (1) notes that according to Country Racing Victoria, attendances at country race meets
             has increased by 25 per cent over the past five years;
       (2) acknowledges the importance of racing to country communities for jobs, economic
             activity and social interaction;
29 July 2009                                                                                     3

    (3)   notes that the increased attendance figures stand in contrast to the course of action as
          outlined by the Racing Victoria Directions Paper which proposes the loss of training
          facilities and a reduction of race meetings at a number of country clubs throughout the
          Eastern Victoria Region; and
    (4) calls on the Minister for Racing to stand up for country racing, country jobs and the
          benefits racing delivers to communities in the Eastern Victoria Region and ensure that
          training centres and race meets are not unnecessarily cut.

5   MR GUY — To move —
    That this House notes with concern the Brumby Government’s new Growth Areas
    Infrastructure Contribution, including —
    (1) the retrospective nature of the charge;
    (2) the impact upon housing affordability of the new charge;
    (3) the adverse impact on jobs the upfront nature of the charge will have;
    (4) the adverse impact on urban development that this charge will bring; and
    (5) the failure of the Brumby Government to understand that during tough economic times
          finding up to $100 million to pay a Government tax may not be possible for many
          developers and will lead to the scuttling of development in Victoria at a time that it is
          most needed.
    [Notice given on 31 March 2009 — Listed for 15 days].

6   MR O’DONOHUE — To move —
    That this House —
    (1) notes the unique attributes of Point Nepean and the importance of it to the people of
          Victoria and the environment of the Mornington Peninsula;
    (2) notes that dates for the hand-over of Point Nepean from the Commonwealth
          Government to the State Government have come and gone without explanation,
          leaving Point Nepean and its long term future in a state of limbo;
    (3) notes that the Point Nepean Trust, established with the assistance of the previous
          Federal Government, is ready and waiting to take a more active role in the
          management of Point Nepean; and
    (4) calls on the State Government to do all things necessary to ensure that the smooth
          hand-over of ownership from the Federal Government to the State Government occurs
          without further delay so that the future of Point Nepean is secure and can be managed
          for the benefit of all Victorians.
    [Notice given on 31 March 2009 — Listed for 15 days].

7   MR O’DONOHUE — To move —
    That this House —
    (1) notes that since the opening of the Pakenham bypass on 1 December 2007 the volume
          of traffic, including large trucks, travelling through the Koo Wee Rup township has
          grown significantly;
    (2) notes this increase in traffic is having a detrimental impact on the amenity of the
          township and is increasing the risk of accidents occurring in the township;
    (3) notes that travelling via Koo Wee Rup is the preferred route for tourists travelling from
          Melbourne to the Bass Coast, Phillip Island and South Gippsland, and consequently
          the construction of the Koo Wee Rup bypass is critical to the development of tourism in
          this region;
    (4) notes that the planning overlays that are in place to protect the proposed bypass routes
          compromise land values and the ability of land owners to develop or improve their
          properties;
    (5) calls on the Minister for Roads and Ports to determine the route for the bypass and to
          then cause all redundant overlays to be removed from affected land owners; and
4                                                      Legislative Council Notice Paper No. 127

     (6)   calls on the Minister for Roads and Ports to prioritise the construction of the Koo Wee
           Rup bypass for the safety and amenity of the wonderful township of Koo Wee Rup, the
           communities of the Bass Coast and South Gippsland and the tourism related jobs that
           depend on this project.
     [Notice given on 31 March 2009 — Listed for 15 days].

8    MR O’DONOHUE — To move —
     That this House —
     (1) thanks the Power Grid Option Group (PGOG) for developing the case for the under
           grounding of any power lines needed to power the proposed desalination plant at
           Wonthaggi;
     (2) notes that with advances in technology and experience from other projects it is
           estimated that under grounding power lines for the desalination project may be
           comparable in cost to constructing overhead power lines;
     (3) notes that the Minister for Planning failed to make the under grounding of power lines a
           condition of the project proceeding;
     (4) notes the safety benefits of under ground power lines particularly from fire;
     (5) calls on the Government to ensure that any power lines required from Tynong to
           Wonthaggi are placed underground, and where possible, on public land using existing
           easements; and
     (6) notes that there will be significant adverse side effects for tourism, agriculture, lifestyle
           and amenity if over head power lines are constructed through West Gippsland, South
           Gippsland and the Bass Coast for the desalination plant.
     [Notice given on 31 March 2009 — Listed for 15 days].

9    MR O’DONOHUE — To move —
     That this House —
     (1) notes the disappointment and frustration of the local community notwithstanding that
           the commencement of work for the Cardina Road railway station will commence in
           2010, it will take the State Government until 2012-2013, or three to four years before
           the Lakeside/Cardinia Road railway station will be ready for use;
     (2) recognises the importance of access to the metropolitan rail network for the residents
           of the Cardinia Road precinct to commute to work, school and other activities;
     (3) calls into question the State Government's timing of complicated, major road and rail
           projects as detailed in the Government's Transport Plan when it takes up to four years
           to construct a new green field railway station;
     (4) notes that the Berwick to Pakenham Growth Corridor has been neglected in the
           Government's recently announced Transport Plan;
     (5) notes the greater use of the metropolitan rail network reduces demand on the road
           network and helps the environment; and
     (6) calls on the Government to reprioritise the construction of the Lakeside/Cardinia Road
           railway station for the betterment of the community and the environment.
     [Notice given on 2 April 2009 — Listed for 13 days].

10   MR O’DONOHUE — To move —
     That this House —
     (1) notes that in recent months the Rudd Government has distributed to Australians, non-
           resident citizens, non-resident foreign nationals, deceased estates, dogs, cats, and
           other animals, in excess of $20 billion in cash grants;
     (2) notes that the cash grants do little to develop further the infrastructure of Victoria or
           Australia and have had little impact on retail sales and growth;
     (3) notes that Victoria's share of the $20 billion, approximately $5 billion, could have been
           put to use in developing and growing the productive capacity of Victoria and therefore
29 July 2009                                                                                           5

           grow long term productivity, the key to rising living standards, competitiveness and job
           creation;
     (4) notes the gross under-investment over the decade of the State Labor Government in
           the basic infrastructure of this State, the result of which is, among other things, a critical
           water shortage, the collapse of the public transport infrastructure, clogged roads and a
           shortage of power;
     (5) notes that the Victorian Government Transport Plan is heavily reliant on funding from
           the Rudd Government; and
     (6) expresses its disappointment that the State Labor Government failed to convince the
           Rudd Government of the benefit of investment in infrastructure and capacity rather than
           consumptive spending to stimulate long term sustainable economic growth.
     [Notice given on 2 April 2009 — Listed for 13 days].

11   MR O’DONOHUE — To move —
     That this House —
     (1) notes that every Victorian has the right to a decent education;
     (2) recognises that education is one of the keys to escaping poverty and disadvantage;
     (3) recognises that the population of the Shire of Cardinia is expanding by three to four
           families a week;
     (4) recognises that the Pakenham, Koo Wee Rup and Emerald Secondary Colleges do a
           great job in providing public secondary education to the students of Cardinia;
     (5) notes that the population of the Shire of Cardinia is reported to be growing by 4.43 per
           cent and will increase by 32,000 by 2016 and that the existing public secondary
           colleges will not be able to meet this increased demand alone; and
     (6) calls on the Government to prioritise the early construction of a new secondary college
           in the Shire of Cardinia to ensure that all students, regardless of their families’
           resources, are able to receive a quality secondary education in Cardinia.
     [Notice given on 2 April 2009 — Listed for 13 days].

12   MR D.M. DAVIS — To move —
     That this House expresses its serious concern at —
     (1) the Brumby Government’s manifest disregard for Victorian patients as evidenced by its
           proven corruption of hospital waiting lists where patients in pain and suffering serious
           illnesses are forced to wait longer periods of time for treatment, with no comprehensive
           and accurate record of those waiting periods officially recorded or recognised by the
           State Government, in order for hospitals to corruptly and fraudulently attract
           undeserved performance payments and so disguise the Government’s failure to
           properly manage our hospitals; and
     (2) the prospect of the Federal Government reducing its funding for Victoria under the
           Australian Health Care Agreements, particularly due to the Brumby Government’s
           proven corrupt hospital waiting list practices, and given the clear and unambiguous
           statement of Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon that the deliberate manipulation of
           hospital data would “result in the Federal Government adjusting performance bonuses
           so as to reflect the true and accurate performance” and the possibility that such
           adjustment may be made retrospectively given the blatantly fraudulent nature of this
           Labor scam.
     [Notice given on 2 April 2009 — Listed for 13 days].

13   MRS COOTE — To move —
     That this House condemns the Premier for his Government’s clearways policy, as traders,
     local councils and residents were not properly consulted before the implementation of the
     policy, and there is still mass confusion regarding the parking restrictions under the policy.
     [Notice given on 6 May 2009 — Listed for 12 days].
6                                                    Legislative Council Notice Paper No. 127

14   MR KOCH — To move —
     That this House condemns the Minister for Mental Health, Community Services and Senior
     Victorians for the gross misuse of tax payer funds chartering air services from Essendon to
     Portland for $5445 after having confirmed an earlier commercial flight with Sharp Aviation out
     of Avalon for two at a cost of $894 and further notes that no valid reason has been
     forthcoming for this expenditure that is recognised as excessive especially as Sharp Aviation
     takes in Avalon on its Essendon to Portland route and believes the arrogance of Brumby
     Government Ministers’ expenditure on transport and the flippancy by which it was incurred
     may well be unprecedented.
     [Notice given on 6 May 2009 — Listed for 12 days].

15   MRS COOTE — To move —
     That this House condemns the Minister for Police and Emergency Services for the fact police
     patrol hours have decreased significantly in the cities of Stonnington (24%), Port Phillip
     (29%) and Glen Eira (40%) since 2002-03, resulting in residents being fearful for their safety
     while walking the streets.
     [Notice given on 6 May 2009 — Listed for 12 days].

16   MR FINN — To move —
     That this House condemns the Brumby Government for its totally inadequate response to the
     Ombudsman's investigation into the alleged improper conduct of councillors at Brimbank City
     Council and, in particular, the House deplores the Government's attempts to cover up
     possible corrupt and dishonest activity by the Minister for Planning, gross negligence by the
     Minister for Local Government and improper influence, intimidation and corruption committed
     by a number of Members of Parliament, councillors, and other members of the Australian
     Labor Party.
     [Notice given on 2 June 2009 — Listed for 10 days].

17   MRS PEULICH — To move —
     That this House —
     (1) notes the reported targeting of Mr George Seitz, MP, by the hierarchy of the Australian
           Labor Party, which is making moves to unseat Mr Seitz by removing the pre-selection
           for the seat of Keilor from the plebiscite of Labor members to a central panel following
           his exposure of corruption at Brimbank Council, the subject of a recent Ombudsman’s
           report;
     (2) calls on the Premier to ensure that whistleblowers are afforded protection under
           relevant Victorian legislation; and
     (3) encourages the Premier to initiate reforms of the ALP which would see the end of the
           culture of bullying and corruption rather than merely “shooting the messenger”.
     [Notice given on 2 June 2009 — Listed for 10 days].

18   MR FINN — To move —
     That this House condemns the Minister for Local Government for gross negligence in —
     (1) refusing to take necessary action against Brimbank City Council when warned of
           corruption and other illegal activities at that Council;
     (2) ignoring repeated warnings by Members of Parliament, community groups and
           residents of Brimbank about corrupt and illegal practices at the Council; and
     (3) adopting a policy of doing nothing while a major scandal engulfed a municipality that is
           his statutory responsibility.
     [Notice given on 2 June 2009 — Listed for 10 days].

19   MRS PEULICH — To move —
     That this House —
     (1) condemns the Minister for Planning, the Brumby Government and the Labor Member
           for Frankston for removing the basic right of Victorians and the voters of Mordialloc,
29 July 2009                                                                                         7

           Carrum, Mount Waverly, Cranbourne, Narre Warren North, Narre Warren South,
           Lyndhurst, Dandenong, Mulgrave and Clayton across the South East Metropolitan
           Region to protection against bad planning and inappropriate development which will
           result from:
           (a) the fast tracking of public housing projects funded by the Federal Labor
                 Government, removing the rights of residents to be informed about developments
                 which may impact on them and the removal of the right to object or exercise third
                 party appeal rights to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal; and
           (b) the Brumby Labor Government’s legislation which establishes the Development
                 Assessment Committees, unelected bodies which will be responsible, on behalf
                 of the Minister for Planning and the Brumby Labor Government, for making
                 decisions on major local projects in designated activity centres;
     (3) expresses serious concern about decision making behind closed doors by unelected
           bodies whose decisions are non-reviewable;
     (4) notes that making decisions behind closed doors opens the door to corruption; and
     (5) calls on the Brumby Labor Government to immediately reinstate the rights of residents
           in Victoria’s planning process, or failing that, to immediately establish an anti-corruption
           commission to monitor the development and planning decisions which will be made
           without appropriate scrutiny by or for the Minister for Planning.
     [Notice given on 2 June 2009 — Listed for 10 days].

20   MR FINN — To move —
     That this House calls on the Premier to fully investigate the role the Hon. Theo Theophanous
     played in the scandal surrounding Brimbank City Council, and in particular, the influence he
     exerted over Council decision making via his relationship with Dr Andrew Theophanous and
     former councillor and Deputy Mayor Kathryn Eriksson.
     [Notice given on 2 June 2009 — Listed for 10 days].

21   MR D.M. DAVIS — To move —
     (1) notes the refusal of the Government to comply fully with the Resolution of the Council
         of 11 March 2009 to table documents relating to solar or other renewable energy feed
         in electricity tariffs on the grounds of Executive Privilege;
     (2) is of the firm opinion that the Council is fully entitled to scrutinise the activities of the
         Executive and demands accountability for all aspects of Executive behaviour;
     (3) rejects the Government’s claim that the release of documents listed in the schedule
         attached to correspondence to the Clerk of the Legislative Council by the Attorney
         General and numbered 9, 15, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 and 63 “would reveal high-level
         confidential deliberative processes of the Executive Government or otherwise
         genuinely jeopardise the necessary relationship of confidentiality between a Minister
         and Government officer”, or that the release of document 16 “would reveal confidential
         legal advice and prejudice intergovernmental relations”, or that the release of
         documents 11, 12, 13 and 14 “would reveal the deliberative processes of Cabinet, and
         high-level confidential deliberative process of the Executive Government or otherwise
         genuinely jeopardise the necessary relationship of confidentiality between a Minister
         and a Government officer”, or that the release of document 58 “would reveal
         information obtained by the Executive Government on the basis that it would be kept
         confidential”, and that these matters provide an adequate excuse for the non-provision
         of these documents by the Government;
     (4) accordingly, censures the Leader of the Government as the representative of the
         Government in the Council for the Government’s failure to fully comply with the

     (2) that traffic congestion is a major problem to residents, drivers and an impost on
           business and industry in the South East; and
     (3) that the dumping of the South Road Extension to Westall Link by the Labor
           Government is misguided, irresponsible and due in part to the failure of local

         That this House notes —
         (1) the on going failure of the Bracks and Brumby Governments to secure Victoria’s water
               supply over its 10 years in office, with Melbourne's water storages at approximately
               26% capacity compared with 30.6% this time last year;
         (2) that this failure to take timely action to avert this water crisis now means that
               Victorians and Victorian families will be hit with massive water bills increases which will
               continue to rise to generate additional revenue to pay for water infrastructure;

         calls on local Labor MPs to apologise to families in their electorates for Victorian Labor’s
         incompetent management of water by successive Ministers for Water, who would more
         appropriately be referred to as Ministers for “no water”, and which is now causing greater

           represent New South Wales, and New South Wales member the Hon. Chris Bowen
           was promoted from the Junior Ministry to Cabinet; and

           (a) the $1.5 million in funding promised nine years ago to replace the schools 25
                 portable buildings has still not been delivered and the portables, some of which

     (2) expresses its concern that the Members for the Electoral Districts of Bendigo East and
           Bendigo West have not supported investment in the redevelopment of Bendigo Senior
           Secondary College because they have been too focused on facilitating the closure of
           schools in Bendigo through forced mergers; and

     That this House notes with concern that the Brumby Government continues to actively
     discriminate against the many people who once lived in Marysville on a part-time basis
     before Black Saturday, and notes that —
     (1) the part-time residents (many of whom are enrolled to vote in the Eastern Metropolitan
           Region) have been frustrated in their attempts to communicate with the Victorian
           Bushfire Reconstruction and Recovery Authority and they are concerned that their
           needs will never be recognised;
     (2) many of these part-time residents of Marysville are now retired and live on fixed
           incomes and have limited means to raise funds to re-build;
     (3) many are under-insured and they are unable to bridge the gap between their insurance
           cover and the cost of rebuilding, in accordance with the new building regulations for
           fire-prone areas;
     (4) many part-time residents have a deep, almost spiritual attachment to Marysville and
           have suffered great loss and experienced trauma;
     (5) the part-time residents of Marysville have been very restrained and concerned about
           this issue, as they did not want to appear to be clamouring for funds, ahead of victims
           of the conflagration, whose only home has been lost;
     (6) as the year wears on, they are now utterly despairing that they will not ever be able to
           live in Marysville again;
     (7) Marysville as a community needs these residents to return to ensure the economic
           viability of the town;

        (8)   the fullness of public support for fire victims in general only serves to underpin their
              request for support to rejoin the community of Marysville;
        (9) a recent survey of part-time residents facing this problem has revealed that many were
              looking for financial assistance and many were waiting to see how Marysville will
              develop;
        (10) 31% of part-time residents surveyed saw themselves as future full-time residents; and
        (11) it is important that these part-time residents, many of whom have regularly spent three
              to four days per week in Marysville, are not forgotten.

           (b) its failure to support Victorian families who are struggling to access affordable
                 housing due to rental affordability declining; and
           (c) presiding over a period where ABS data reveals that the level of home ownership
                 in Victoria declined from 75 per cent in 1999 to only 70 per cent in 2006; and
     (2) calls on the Government to develop the ‘Integrated Housing Strategy’ as a matter of

41   MR DALLA-RIVA — To move —
     That this House condemns the Government’s Annual Statement of Government Intentions
     2009 because it —
     (1) fails to set clear, concise and measurable objectives and targets;
     (2) fails to provide any explanation for the Brumby Government's persistent culture of
           failure when it comes to delivering on plans and strategies;
     (3) dishonestly seeks to cover-up and then re-hash old plans that have never been
           delivered;
     (4) is devoid of any substance; and
     (5) diverts the resources and focus of the public sector away from fixing serious problems
           such as Government corruption, hospital waiting list blowouts, an explosion in violent

      (1) condemns the Brumby Labor Government for its failure to act on the Consumer Affairs
            Victoria ‘Rural Tenancy Discussion Paper’ released in March 2005, which had a closing
            date for submissions of 31 May 2005 and aimed to identify, document and respond to
            tenancy issues and concerns arising in rural Victoria, and specifically the north east of
            Victoria;
      (2) notes that through its failure to respond to the paper and consultation sessions the
            Brumby Labor Government has failed rural Victorians who are struggling to survive
            increasingly tight rental markets, declining rental affordability and increasing public
            housing waiting lists; and
      (3) notes that a response to this paper is now 1484 days overdue and calls on the
            Government to respond to the ‘Rural Tenancy Discussion Paper’ as a matter of
            urgency.

43    MS LOVELL — To move —

            Victoria ‘Residential Accommodation Issues Paper’ which was released in mid 2006,
            and submissions closed in August 2007, which aimed to identify potential
            improvements in the residential accommodation framework and allow CAV to set
            priority areas in the administration of the law;
      (2) notes that through its failure to respond to the paper and consultation sessions the
            Brumby Labor Government has failed —
            (a) vulnerable Victorians who are forced to seek accommodation in marginal
                   accommodation such as rooming houses, caravan parks, residential parks and
                   student accommodation; and
            (b) Victorians who are struggling to survive increasingly tight rental markets,
                   declining rental affordability and increasing public housing waiting lists;
      (3) notes that a response to this paper is now 662 days overdue; and

44*   MR KOCH — To move —
      That this House condemns the Premier and the Minister for Environment and Climate
      Change for —
      (1) the inexcusable manner in which the Government has allowed Lake Connewarre, a
            world renowned Ramsar wetland, to deteriorate dramatically and unabated since 1999;
      (2) failing to complete and release with recommendations the full report of the Lake
            Connewarre Restoration Committee, chaired by the Member for Bellarine, despite
            spending $175,000 since 2005; and
      (3) failing to halt the accelerating deterioration of Lake Connewarre;
      and calls on the Brumby Government to urgently act to restore the lake to its former condition

      residents.

            allegations of document falsification and excessive costs being imposed on students.
