Housing ACT-tenant downsizing

(Question No 1133)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Housing, upon notice, on 10 May 2006:

How many Housing ACT tenants, occupying (a) two bedroom, (b) three bedroom and (c) four bedroom properties, are eligible to downsize to a one bedroom dwelling or Older Persons Apartment.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The information sought by the Member is not available. Of the total 8974 rebated households, 1081 (12.05%) are eligible to downsize to a one bedroom dwelling.

Housing ACT-full market renters

(Question No 1134)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Housing, upon notice, on 10 May 2006:

(1) What response, if any, has been received by Housing ACT's written request to the Privacy Commissioner seeking an exemption to obtain information on full market renters, similar to the information collected on tenants who receive a rental rebate;

(2) What amendments have been made to the Public Rental Housing Assistance Program that would reflect the need for Housing ACT to acquire private details of all housing tenants, whether they are full market or rebated renters.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Housing ACT has not written to the Privacy Commissioner to seek an exemption. However, the Department is exploring a range of policy options in order to be able to gain a more accurate picture of the demographic issues relating to Housing ACT's market renters.

(2) Until the full range of options has been explored, no amendments have been made to the Public Rental Housing Assistance Program.
