Affordable Housing Working Group—ACT Government submission, pursuant to the resolution of the Assembly of 17 February 2016 concerning public housing.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS BERRY: I am pleased today to table the ACT government’s submission to the commonwealth Affordable Housing Working Group. The government undertook to develop this submission in response to a resolution of the Assembly of 17 February 2016. We have since submitted this paper to the commonwealth and we welcome the national public debate that is now occurring around this issue.

Affordable housing is a challenge which is faced by all jurisdictions across Australia, and the need for a coordinated national response with government policies pulling in the same direction is clear. Our submission highlights the ACT government’s extensive program of work to improve the supply of affordable housing and emphasises the importance and effectiveness of our social housing system in comparison to other jurisdictions.
