SOCIAL HOUSING — DWELLINGS

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 years;

(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?

Hon 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.
