Ms Peulich said she was concerned the public housing waiting list was going to blow out like it did under the last Labor government, when it reached around 41,000 people.
Quotes attributed to Inga Peulich MLC, Member for South Eastern Metropolitan Region:
“History is repeating itself under the Andrews Labor Government The public waiting list had been steadily decreasing under the Coalition but it’s taken just six months for Labor to undo everything that had been achieved.”
“Despite Daniel Andrews’ promise to reduce the waiting list for public housing, it has now blown out to over 1953 people in Frankston, an increase of 91 people in the last six months alone.”
“With a budget now in deficit it is hard to see how Daniel Andrews will be able to afford to reverse this concerning trend. The Andrews Labor Government’s 2015/16 Budget forecasts a net loss in public housing residences, which will only force more people onto the waiting list.”
“Daniel Andrews should explain to local families and children waiting for public housing why they will wait even longer now for a home.”
