  • National Electricity (Victoria) Further Amendment Bill 2015 – Russell Northe
    want to set the record straight on some points When we were in government I think one of the key things we did was to issue an energy policy statement and that talked about a number of things that we were able to do and some of the key initiatives that we were to take up Price has been discussed by the members for Bendigo West and Caulfield and that is absolutely a critical part of it I remind all members of the house that one of the key initiatives the coalition put in place was to extend electricity concessions making them available all year round Those concessions are critical to some of the most vulnerable people within our community It was actually the coalition government that implemented that policy we did that and until this day it has been an important concession for many of the most vulnerable in our community We have talked about the smart meter rollout I will not go there but from a consumer perspective there was the My Power Planner initiative which the current government has rebadged and which has morphed into something else It was going perfectly well Ms D Ambrosio interjected Mr NORTHE It was going perfectly well The minister at the table is interjecting but nonetheless I appreciate that the government has rebadged it It is a good initiative that we introduced as a coalition and it had a great take up I know many people including me actually use it on a frequent basis It is a good initiative It gives some power back to the consumers pardon the pun It is a good tool and it is a good initiative that has been used Again I can stand here and say that I have used it myself There are a whole range of other initiatives that we put in place Critically when we are talking about distribution companies after the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission reported we implemented the powerline bushfire safety program which is a critically important part of making sure that we do protect our electricity assets whilst keeping the community safe at the same time I mentioned our energy policy statement and one of the key aspects of that was competition for network connections If I can read just part of that out on page 41 we said Electricity distribution connections are currently provided to consumers by network businesses There is little competition in delivery of this service and anecdotal evidence suggests that many consumers experience considerable delays in applying for and having the connections installed Successive Victorian governments have supported an approach that allows competitive markets to drive efficient service delivery and ongoing improvements in productivity While it is not possible to introduce competition into all elements of the energy supply chain network connection services could be provided by suitably qualified third party providers I have been approached as a local member of Parliament on a few occasions about the exorbitant costs that can exist

  • Morwell electorate – Constituency questions – Thursday 25 February 2016 – Russell Northe
    if funding that was initially earmarked for Shanghai Electric under the Advanced Lignite Demonstration Program but not actually allocated will be redirected into the Latrobe Valley for other economic development programs Joint funding of 25 million by the state and federal governments was announced in 2014 but unfortunately the Shanghai project which was to be based in the Latrobe Valley did not eventuate Our local community is eager to understand if the state government s portion of the funding could be reallocated into other local economic development programs whether they be energy and resource related or otherwise The Andrews government axed the coalition s successful 15 million Latrobe Valley Industry and Infrastructure Fund leaving our community without a specific economic development fund Therefore the redirecting of this funding into our community is critically important to boost business confidence Share this post Facebook Twitter Google LinkedIn Related posts Morwell electorate Answer to constituency question Thursday 14 April 2016 April 29 2016 Education Question on Notice Thursday 14 April 2016 April 29 2016 Gippsland V Line services petitions Tuesday 12 April 2016 April 13 2016 Upcoming Community Events Latrobe City Calendar of Events May 2016 April 28 2016 Got a story Tell

  • Family violence – Thursday 25 February 2016 – Russell Northe
    it was a fantastic occasion in that respect But as the member for Frankston said it certainly hit home and gave you a real sense of what victims experience when they go through such a thing It is just an awful terrible cowardly deed and the courage of those people who spoke on the day was something very profound Rosie Batty has been mentioned a lot in dispatches and rightly so She is held in the highest regard Indeed a couple of weeks before she spoke in Parliament along with her colleagues she was in Traralgon and spoke at the business breakfast absolutely the largest ever Gippsland business breakfast I have seen in my life Hundreds of people attended this breakfast to listen to her speak about her journey and story and importantly I think about some of the work she has done and continues to do at the moment The audience again was fixated on her journey and what she had done Unfortunately from my local community point of view we do see a significant amount of the scourge of family violence Whilst I am absolutely proud to represent my community in this place I am actually not proud of the statistics that exist in our region with respect to family violence Unfortunately in my community the incidence of family violence is very high It is not a statistic that we should be proud of It is not something that we should be comfortable about and we have to do all that we can to make sure we minimise that By the same token I am actually proud of my community because there are many who are really trying to make a difference Whether it is Quantum Support Services who are delivering family services Gippsland Women s Health or
