Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 13 Hansard (16 November) . . Page.. 5433..


Mr Smyth: May I have the supplementary? Are you ruling the supplementary out of order?

MR SPEAKER: No, I am not. I asked him to sit down. He had asked his question.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Hargreaves, your question.

MR HARGREAVES: My question is to the Minister for Housing. Could the minister please inform the Assembly of the current progress with the shared equity scheme?

MS BURCH: I do thank Mr Hargreaves for his ongoing interest in innovative schemes for home ownership. The shared equity program is an innovative program that is affording home ownership to people for whom home ownership would
