(1)   When did his Department receive the report on Canberra housing problems by a senior official of the Victorian Housing Commission.

(2)   When will the Department publish this report.

(3)   What action has been taken on the report's criticisms of the standard of housing built by the National Capital Development Commission.

(4)   What consideration has been given to the report's recommendation, supported by the late honourable member for the Australian Capital Territory, for the creation of an independent housing authority in the Australian Capital Territory.


Mr Nixon - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows: (1), (2), (3) and (4) A member of the Victorian Housing Commission was asked by my predecessor as Minister for the Interior to provide advice on economic and efficient housing administration in the Australian Capital Territory. No report was requested by or made to my Department and the Department therefore has no report to publish. As a consequence of the advice tendered by the member of the Victorian Housing Commission an Interdepartmental Committee is at present examining the best ways and means by which the government housing function can be economically and efficiently administered in the Australian Capital Territory.
