MS BERRY: On the point of order, I answered the first part of the question. With regard to the second part of the question, those decisions will be considered by cabinet.
MS LE COUTEUR: What is the net cost expected to the government of this program, and what is the time frame for the renewal?
MS BERRY: The strategy is very clear. It announced a $100 million commitment for 1,000 homes to be renewed and an additional 200 new properties to be delivered.
MRS JONES: Minister, with regard to a public housing program, will you meet with the Darwinia Park Action Group once more before soil is turned on that property development?
MS BERRY: Mrs Jones may not be aware, but the Darwinia Park group is still in ACAT—I do not think there is a decision yet.
Mrs Jones: No, it’s finished.
MS BERRY: It is finished?
Mrs Jones: It’s done. Finished. Will you meet with them one more time?
MS BERRY: I will get some advice about where that project is up to.
Mrs Jones: You don’t know if you can meet with them?
MS BERRY: But I had not met with the Darwinia Park group for some time—
Mrs Jones: Well, will you meet with them?
MS BERRY: Giulia—
Mrs Jones: Sorry, it’s very important to them.
MS BERRY: I know it is important to you and important to them; just give me a chance to answer. I will find out where it is up to and when the actual development will take place. Of course we will continue to work with the Darwinia Park group, the same way we have worked with Monash group and the Calder group—
Mrs Jones: But will you meet with them? It’s actually a very important question.
MADAM SPEAKER: Members! If you have a point of order, you stand. Let the minister answer; it is not a conversation.
Mrs Jones: Well, this is an important question for the people whom we represent in this place, and I don’t think it should become a joke.
