Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 5 Hansard (5 May) . .
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, how many records for Housing ACT properties have disappeared in this manner, and does Housing provide a building report for properties that it sells?
MS BERRY: I will have to take some advice on that question and come back to the Assembly with some information for the member. Thanks for the question.
MRS JONES: Minister, how many homes have been sold by Housing ACT that building reports have found to be uninhabitable?
MS BERRY: I will have to take question on notice as well.
MRS JONES: My question is to the Chief Minister: in April the first of the cleared Mr Fluffy blocks of land were offered for sale at public auction. It has been reported that one block sold for more than 61 per cent above the unimproved value and that others sold for well in excess of unimproved value. The government estimated anticipated sales only at 25 per cent above unimproved value. How many previous Mr Fluffy block owners have purchased back their blocks of land?
MR BARR: I think there was just one question and it was a preamble at the beginning?
MADAM SPEAKER: Yes, a preamble is allowable.
MR BARR: Only 10 blocks have been sold at this point.
Mrs Jones: A point of order on relevance.
MADAM SPEAKER: Yes.
Mrs Jones: The question was: how many owners have bought back their blocks? Even if only 10 have been sold, the question was: how many have bought them back?
MADAM SPEAKER: The question was clearly how many people had bought back their blocks.
MR BARR: Those were auctioned, so those were properties where the owners had not exercised a right to purchase back the property.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, are the auction results pricing the previous owners out of being able to return to their blocks?
