My matter, for the Police Minister, is about the worsening problems in the illegal supply and sale of tobacco in Northern Victoria.
Play is fundamental to the development of children and there is widespread evidence that play is an effective change agent. Sensory play equipment is known to be very successful in supporting children with special needs, including development of problem-solving skills and self-confidence for children who are on the spectrum, ODD, ASD and with other needs.
My Adjournment matter for the Minister of Education, requesting further funding for K9TEACH Pet Therapy.
My question is to the Minister for Emergency Services. Whilst obviously pleased the Government is providing various forms of assistance for those most affected by the State’s terrible recent bushfires (including in my electorate), I am also disturbed that some of the grants following previous bushfires have still not been correctly delivered.
My adjournment matter for the Minister for Corrections relates to the impact of drug use and the disconnects between our justice and health systems in terms or resourcing for drug rehabilitation programs.
I moved a motion in Parliament to expand evidence and make sex offenders’ histories known to Juries. We should follow the lead of other states and expand the range of evidence admissible to juries.
I ask the Treasurer if he could supply, for each year from 2014-15 inclusive, the total dollar amounts collected from the Fire Services Levy from all of the councils in my electorate – and, for those same years, how much (in total dollar amounts) they have received from the State Government specifically to upgrade bushfire-related infrastructure.
