Independent Member for Clark, Andrew Wilkie, asked the Minister for Housing, the Hon Julie Collins, the following in Question Time. Please see above video for full question and response.

“Minister despite all the Federal Government talk about doubling housing and homelessness funding, funding for Tasmania will in fact decline this year under the National Agreement on Social Housing and Homelessness, from $38.1 million to $37.4 million.

“This is the biggest proportional decline of any state.

“Minister I’m sure you understand the dire housing situation in Tasmania as well as I do. How on earth could you let this happen?”
