The Liberals’ Zed Seselja is again asking good questions this time about Katy Gallagher’s mortgage relief fund, which one solitary lucky punter has availed themselves of:
“There is no doubt housing stress has increased in the ACT, yet the Treasurer, Ms Gallagher, claims the mortgage relief fund was a success despite only one person taking up the policy,” said Zed.
The ACT is one of the most unaffordable housing markets in Australia with some of the highest median house prices and rents.
“This was a policy that the community was told would help Canberra families who were struggling to pay their mortgage. What is astounding is that Katy Gallagher says this policy should not be judged solely on outcomes – how many people accessed the scheme, but rather how many people accessed the website,” Zed said.
