In what we can only hope is the end of Dr. Foskey’s housing woes the MLA’s former public-housing residence has gone under the hammer for a stonking $665,000. The Canberra Times has the story, as does the ABC.
The ABC has Minister Hargreaves putting it all in perspective.
Housing Minister John Hargreaves says the sale means the Government can now buy more suitable properties for those who have been waiting on the housing register for some time.
“We can actually buy one-and-a-half free-standing homes for people who have specific needs, or we can buy a couple of two bedroom apartments around the traps, also to suit those people,” he said.
