Questions Without Notice: Public Housing

GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (12:00:57): My question is for the minister representing the Minister for Housing, Ms Symes. Recently my office had the pleasure of meeting Jenny Smith and Kate Colvin of the Council to Homeless Persons. Both Jenny and Kate explained the growing homelessness crisis facing Victoria, in particular in my region of western Victoria. In my constituency alone there are around 2055 homeless people. One suggested way to address this growing issue of homelessness is to legislate a requirement for a percentage of all new housing developments to be either public or affordable housing. Is the minister able to provide any insight into whether or not the Andrews government supports the achievable figure of 10 per cent that is supported by the Council to Homeless Persons?
