The Hon Tanya Plibersek MP, Federal Minister for Housing, discusses housing affordability at The Australian National University on 25 May 2010. The national crisis in affordable accommodation has hit low income earners hard in Canberra. Even where new public service graduates, students, young families and the unemployed have been able to find accommodation they often can't afford the rents on offer. Demand for public housing and student accommodation far outstrips supply. What is being done by government about rental affordability, and what can we do better? Where is new investment needed? The Federal Minister for Housing, The Hon Tanya Plibersek addressed these questions at a special lunchtime lecture and Q&A hosted by the Australian Fabians and the ANU Students' Association.
