Housing

(Question No. 2117)


Senator Payne asked the Minister representing the Treasurer, upon notice, on 24 August 2012:

Can details be provided on departmental and administered funds provided for matters pertaining to housing, including the: (a) number and level of allocated staff; and (b) departmental structure down to section level.


Senator Wong: The Treasurer has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

Treasury does not have responsibility for administration of any housing programs.

Treasury currently has an average staffing level (ASL, including full-time and part-time staff) of: 3.8 Executive Level 2 staff members, 2.5 Executive Level 1 staff members, and 1 APS 5 staff member allocated to look at housing issues. This includes provision by Treasury of secretariat support as required for the National Housing Supply Council.

In terms of Departmental structure, the Cities, Housing and Planning Unit, and the National Housing Supply Council Unit both operate within the Infrastructure Division.
