Advocating for Equitable Social Housing

Today I was pleased to speak on the Consumer Legislation Amendment Bill 2020, to ensure equity and to right system-inadequacy for some of Victoria’s most disadvantaged citizens. You can watch my speech here.

Ensuring that social and affordable housing continues to be available to as many as possible, and to regulate the proper allocation of such vital housing, is fundamental to the values of the Andrews Government.

Victoria under past Labor governments has a proud history of the provision of public housing.

I am particularly pleased to also support amendments to the Residential Tenancies Amendment Act 2018, and the Retirement Villages Act 1986.

As some in the parliament like to remind me from time to time, I do have some experience in living in retirement villages, so I was well placed to deliver these remarks today!
