Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): My constituency question is to the Minister for Housing, and I ask: will any of the funding for housing initiatives in this year’s budget be expended within the Prahran electorate, and if so, where, when and how many units? I was certainly pleased to see the state government make housing a priority in the recent state budget. It has certainly been one of my priorities since being elected, so I would like to know if any of the new homes from the Big Housing Build will be built in the Prahran electorate. It certainly is needed; there is no doubt about that. I would also welcome the energy efficiency upgrades for social housing properties, including air conditioning, so I again ask if any of the public housing homes in the Prahran electorate are going to be upgraded. Residents living in the towers have regularly contacted me in the summer months needing air conditioning installed in their homes. In terms of upgrades to the towers, a few levels of the towers were done in Horace Petty years ago with the promise that there were more to be completed, but that never eventuated, so upgrades are long overdue. We need more public housing and we need better public housing within the Prahran electorate.
