Mr BELL: My question is to the Premier. Can the Premier advise how much of the $900 million maintenance tender for public housing will be allocated to the seat of Mount Gambier?
The Hon. V.A. CHAPMAN (Bragg—Deputy Premier, Attorney-General, Minister for Planning and Local Government) (15:08): I thank the member for the question. I am responsible for the minister in this house in relation to these matters. I also have a lot of generic data in relation to other areas specifically in relation to Mount Gambier. I will make that inquiry and come back to the member.
In reply to Mr BELL (Mount Gambier) - 24th August 2021
The Hon. V.A. CHAPMAN (Bragg—Deputy Premier, Attorney-General, Minister for Planning and Local Government): The Minister for Human Services has provided the following advice:
SA Housing Authority’s head contractors for maintenance services tender is for maintenance on all public housing properties across the state.
The amount of maintenance expenditure over the contract period will be dependent on future responsive maintenance requests from public housing tenants, future planned programmed and vacancy maintenance.
