Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 1 Hansard (18 February) . . Page.. 79..


MS TUCKER (continuing):

The only other matter is comments made by the committee on the Essential Services Consumer Council. There were some interesting points made by the chair of the council, relating to public housing and energy efficiency. There were also comments on debt recovery from tenants and the need to liaise with the ESCC. Housing is an essential service, yet we have the Essential Services Consumer Council dealing with issues such as other essential services and debt. It would be useful to see more liaison between the two groups. As ACT Housing might benefit from that, we have suggested that that occur.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
