Business of the House – Program

Mr D O’BRIEN (Gippsland South) (12:26): I will be very brief.

Mr Battin: Hear, hear.

Mr D O’BRIEN: It is always great to have support from your own side. Thank you, member for Gembrook. The government business program is quite a busy program this week, which is quite a change from recent months when we have been lucky to have two bills to debate. Obviously we are getting towards the end-of-term rush and we are now getting quite a number of bills. I agree, though, that there are some very important bills on the agenda this week.

In particular I look forward to contributing on the Sustainable Forests Timber Amendment (Timber Harvesting Safety Zones) Bill 2022, which is one good thing that this government has introduced to this Parliament with respect to the forestry industry. I look forward to debate on that, to welcoming the First Nations people to the chamber tomorrow as part of the debate on the Treaty Authority and Other Treaty Elements Bill 2022 and later tomorrow to welcoming Mr Limbrick back into the other place, as I understand the joint sitting is intended to do. With those short words, I will leave it at that.
