Legislative Council: Tuesday, June 14, 2022



In reply to the Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (17 May 2022).

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Human Services has advised:

The Minister for Human Services has met with a number of homelessness alliance leaders and made it clear that she has no plans to dismantle the alliances. The minister has every intention of fixing serious flaws in the homelessness system that were left by the Liberals. This includes no outcomes framework for a sector with more than $71 million per year in government funding. The Liberal model also lacked critical CBD supports that Labor has addressed by committing an additional $6 million to Catherine House, the Hutt Street Centre and St Vincent de Paul.
