Today's release of the report into the Inquiry into the Public Housing Renewal Program shows the public housing waiting lists are blowing out under Daniel Andrews.
The report reveals that the number of people on the Victorian Housing Register has increased by around 1,500 people in the first three months of this year.According to the report, there are now over 82,000 people, including 24,622 children seeking public housing.
As the responsible minister, Martin Foley should spend less time focusing on introducing an Ice Injecting Room just 37 metres from a primary school and more time addressing these waiting list blowouts.
