SOCIAL HOUSING —
707. Hon COLIN TINCKNELL to the minister representing
Minister for Housing:
(1) Can the government please
provide me with —
(a) the number of
dwellings that have been added to the social housing stock in the past three
(b) the number of dwellings that have been removed from
the social housing stock in the past three years; and
(c) how many dwellings have been
planned and funded, but are not yet complete?
(2) Can the
minister please provide a summary of the reasons for the removal of dwellings
from the state housing stock?
(3) With reference to the minister's answer to
question without notice 638 from 18 June this year, why has the government stock of social housing dwellings
decreased by more than 1 100 during this term of government?
STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
In order to provide a response to
this question, the Department of Communities will need to undertake research
and therefore an answer is unable to be provided in the required time frame. I ask
the honourable member to place this question on notice.
