(4) After careful consideration of the question, and advice provided by my Department, I have determined that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would be a major task, requiring a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to divert resources from the provision of direct services to clients, for the purposes of answering the Member's question.

However, Housing ACT can advise that $34.4m was spent on repairing, maintaining and improving public housing properties in 2007-08. In 2008-09, Housing ACT spent $43.7m and has budgeted $42.2m in 2009-10 for similar works. The figures in 2008-09 and 2009-10 include $2.3m in ACT Government funding to improve the energy efficiency of public housing properties. These two years also include $3.2m in funding from the Australian Government Economic Stimulus Plan which ceases in 2009-10.
