State Government's affordable and social housing track record fail

4th May 2022

Statement from Minister for Housing and Public Works, Tim Mander

The Palaszczuk Government’s track record on creating affordable and social housing for Queenslanders is abysmal.

Right now in Queensland there are 50,000 people on the social housing waiting list.

That is a 70% increase over the last 7 years.

That has happened on this Government’s watch.

This Labor Government loves an announcement but it is outcomes that matter and on that front they are badly failing Queenslanders who badly need a roof over their head.

The numbers don’t lie.

Queenslanders deserve better than this.
