Mr Hibbins to ask the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing — For each of the public housing estates in the Prahran electorate including the Horace Petty Estate, Kings Street, Bangs Street, Union Street Windsor and Inkerman Heights St Kilda:

(1)    What is the annual maintenance budget.

(2)    What is the annual capital works budget.

(3)    What is the annual security budget.


I am informed that:

The total output cost for housing assistance in 2015-16 is budgeted for $420.8 million, which is over $20 million more than was budgeted by the previous government in 2014-15-a 5.5% increase. This additional expenditure enables the Director of Housing to spend more on maintenance, capital works and security in the Member's electorate and across Victoria.
