Cost of Living Concession

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (14:58): Supplementary: given that housing is one of the biggest cost-of-living burdens, what measures will be put in place to support home owners, and will there be any concessions around stamp duty or other elements to support people getting into a home?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:58): I am happy to refer the substance of that to the minister responsible in another place in this area. The member would no doubt have seen announcements that have been made over previous weeks that are aimed at increasing the supply of housing in South Australia as a direct measure to look at doing this.
