My question is to the Housing Minister.

It follows days of sweltering heat at the end of January, most notably when temperatures in Mildura reached in 43 degrees with an oppressive overnight low of 27 degrees.

I have previously raised in this Parliament my concern for residents in social housing properties without air conditioning, in particular the risk to general health, escalation of family violence and the misuse of alcohol and drugs, and was very grateful for the Government’s announcement of the Social Housing Energy Efficiency Program announced in the budget.

In light of these risks, my question is for the Minister to specify the number of properties included in the rollout of the Social Housing Efficiency Program against the number of properties without air conditioning in each town in my electorate of Northern Victoria?
