Member of ACT Parliament maintains right to public housing

By Indi - 18 May 2005 21

I was astounded to hear that the Greens MLA is still maintaining the line that she has the ‘right’ to remain in public housing.

No laws/regulations are broken, yet ethically when someone purports to be standing up for Canberrans, particularly those who need to access social services such as public housing, you’d think there would be a realisation that you should offer the public house you live in, to someone who needs it more than you.

NSW govt have seen the writing on the wall and are set to alter policy on security of tenure. Eventually the ACT will have to face the same complex problem and make some tough decisions that will see disadvantaged people gain access to the most basic requirements – shelter.

What’s Your opinion?
