Minerals Resource Rent Tax Legislation 2011

November 23, 2011

I also rise to speak on the package of 11 bills which form the minerals resource rent tax legislation 2011.

Exceptional Circumstances Exit Grants Program

November 23, 2011

This motion is about the great distress and hardship that is now afflicting some farming families who have been caught up in a backflip, a change of mind, in relation to Exceptional Circumstances Exit Grants. We hope through this motion that the government will change its mind and put less than $5 million into making good on what, we believe, was a commitment that will give some farm families a ch...Click here for full story

Goulburn Valley Food Cooperative

November 23, 2011

The date 27 May 2011 is seared into the memories of the citizens of the tiny town of Girgarre in Northern Victoria.

November 7, 2011

Dr STONE (Murray) (12:35): I rise to speak on the Social Security Amendment (Student Income Support Reforms) Bill 2011.

Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning Private Members’ Motion

November 7, 2011

Dr STONE (Murray) (11:32): The motion put by the member for La Trobe refers to a valuable alternative program to years 11 and 12 offered in the final years of Victorian secondary schooling.
