    Nursing Federation (ANF) union, this House notes that in 2007, the then Minister for Health

    action, it is compromising the care of hundreds of thousands of patients right across our
    state’, and further —
    (1) notes the divergent views of the Shadow Minister for Health, Mr Gavin Jennings, MLC

    (2) calls on the Leader of the Opposition, Mr Daniel Andrews, MP to pull his Shadow
           Minister for Health, Mr Gavin Jennings, MLC into line and insist that he desist in every
           way from encouraging behaviour on the part of the ANF union that is not only illegal but
           is compromising the care of increasing numbers of Victorian patients.

    apologise for his flippant and offhand comment concerning pool safety for children during
    Question Time on 13 March 2012, and that he do so without reservation, both recognising

    nature of efforts to reduce the number of these tragedies.

NOTICES OF MOTION
230 MR LENDERS — To move —
    That this House —
    (1) notes that Ms Cindy McLeish, Member for the electoral district of Seymour, said in a
          media release on 16 November 2011 that she welcomed the closing of the North-South
          Pipeline and that “it was common sense for Melbourne to meet its own water needs

          Pipeline saga behind us and get on with enjoying life”;
    (3) notes that closing down this billion dollar asset means that constituents in the southern
          30 per cent of Ms McLeish’s electorate will have less long-term water security and will

          “common sense” to draw water from the northern irrigation areas during drought but not

    commitment in her election material.

          (a) acquired brain injury support;

261 MR LENDERS — To move —
    That this House notes that —
    (1) the Assistant Treasurer, Mr Gordon Rich-Phillips, MLC, in Parliament on 9 February
          2012, equated drawing $471.5 million out of WorkCover with withdrawing money out of
          a cemetery trust and refused to rule out benefit cuts to accommodate the drawdown of
          WorkCover reserves;
    (2) the Baillieu-Ryan Government's unprecedented grab for cash out of WorkCover will
          jeopardise any —
          (a) benefits of injured workers;
          (b) prospects of repeating Labor's six WorkCover premium cuts;
          (c) ongoing viability of the innovative Worksafe health prevention programs; and
          (d) ability of Worksafe to maintain reserves equal to its actuarial obligations; and
    (3) using the WorkCover authority as a revenue-raising vehicle at a time manufacturing is
          under unprecedented cost pressures from a strong dollar is an attack on Victorian
          manufacturing jobs.

262 MR JENNINGS — To move —
    That this House —
    (1) notes the discrepancy between the commitment of the Baillieu Government to increase
          the number of elective surgeries carried out in Victorian hospitals and the actual
          contracts entered into by the Minister for Health, which only provide funding for a net
          decrease of 9,395 in the number of elective surgeries in 2011-12 compared to 2010-11;
    (2) expresses its concern that this discrepancy is compounded by the undertakings of the
          Government to improve Victoria’s healthcare, outlined in notice of motion No. 24 in the
          name of the Minister for Health, compared with the actual outcomes that the Minister is
          delivering under his administration;
    (3) further expresses its concern that on the one hand, the Baillieu Government
          congratulates itself on securing better financial outcomes from the Council of Australian
          Governments (COAG) agreement on health and goes on to promise better outcomes
          for Victorian patients, then on the other hand, tries to blame the Commonwealth when
          the Victorian Government fails to deliver new beds or the promised increase in elective
          surgery; and
10                                                      Legislative Council Notice Paper No. 67

     (4)   calls on the Government to accept its responsibility under the COAG agreement to fund
           the Victorian hospital sector adequately to satisfy national standards, and to deliver on
           the Baillieu Government’s election commitments in health.

    (1) 9,000 more Victorians are now unemployed since the Baillieu Government took office;
          and
    (2) Victoria has the highest level of youth unemployment in mainland Australia at 21.1%;

264 MS TIERNEY — To move —
    That this House —
    (1) condemns the Government’s decision to increase car registration and stamp duty for
          non-luxury cars in Victoria;
    (2) notes that in a time when circumstances for Australian manufacturers and the
          automotive industry are increasingly difficult, this decision is indicative of a Government
          that lacks knowledge of how to support manufacturing in Victoria; and
    (3) notes the decision does nothing to protect Victorian jobs and demonstrates that this
          Government is not interested in manufacturing, let alone providing new jobs for
          Victorians.

          Government’s decision to cut funding for the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning
          (VCAL), including —
          (a) the Victorian Association of State Secondary Principals who stated, ‘notification
                of the withdrawal of VCAL coordination funding reflects a very poor
                understanding of this very important pathway… this decision flies directly in the
                face of government election commitments to support schools by cutting
                bureaucracy and red tape for schools and makes a mockery of commitments to
                give back to government schools the control and support they need to give every
                child a world-class education’;
          (b) Hamilton’s Baimbridge College principal, Mr Robert Vecchiet, who said, ‘we are
                enormously disappointed that cuts have been made to a program valued by so
                many students… it is a huge blow to education’; and
          (c) Ballarat’s Secondary College principal who stated, ‘with no budget re-allocation
                for VCAL co-ordination, we will face significant difficulties in maintaining that
                program… it’s absolutely appalling’.
    (2) urges the Government to immediately reinstate funding for VCAL coordinators in
          Victorian Schools.

     (1)   the very first act of the Baillieu Government was to expand the Cabinet by 10 per cent;
           and
     (2) most of the election commitments of the Baillieu Government have not been subject to
           any regulatory impact statements, despite one being a key underpinning of productivity.

          as they apply to the State of Victoria, and in particular Geelong; and
    (5) calls on the Premier to explain to workers in Geelong whose jobs are under threat, why

          Protective Services Officers (PSOs) to patrol train stations from 6.00 p.m. until the last

    (2) at the current rate, the Baillieu-Ryan Government’s commitment to deliver dedicated
          train station PSOs will take more than 50 years;
    (3) the Baillieu-Ryan Government has broken its commitment for PSOs to patrol 13 railway
          stations across regional Victoria and are now only providing PSOs for four regional
          railway stations;
    (4) the Baillieu-Ryan Government did not take into account accommodating PSOs’ basic
          human rights and needs, such as access to toilets and shelter, when formulating its
          flawed policy;
    (5) the Ballieu-Ryan Government did not take into account the extra capacity needed at

    (6) the Ballieu-Ryan Government underestimated the level of training PSOs required to
          perform their role when formulating this flawed policy; and
    (7) the Coalition Members of Parliament have remarkably decreased the number of public
          statements regarding their concerns of their constituents’ safety on train stations since
          they were in Opposition.

    (1) the Baillieu Government had no intention to build a rail line to Rowville despite a

          constituents a false impression when in opposition that they would deliver this project;
    (2) it is physically impossible to travel on a “feasibility study” from Rowville to Flinders
          Street station; and
    (3) the Minister for Transport’s excuse to shelve the Rowville Rail project to accommodate
          the integration of train services to Rowville because he was not briefed about the
          increased capacity of, and the removal of a level crossing on, the Dandenong line,
          shows the Coalition’s haphazard, uninformed approach to forming transport policy.

                they buy … it’s tough enough getting into farming as it is, let alone finding the
