Prue Car addresses Parliament
18/06 Prue Car “The Government should look seriously at what Vinnies is suggesting”
Ms Prue Car, Shadow Minister for Western Sydney, addressed state Parliament on Social and Affordable Housing.
“This afternoon I must thank, in particular, the local St Marys chapter of the St Vincent de Paul Society, which is very active and has met with me on many occasions about this issue. Local society members do so very much to support the needy in our community. They are part of the St Vincent DePaul Society’s Build Homes, Built Hope project, which is a plan for 5,000 additional social housing homes a year. I thank St Vinnies in my community and the social justice representative of St Vincent de Paul Society, Parramatta, Caterina Tribbia, for consistently keeping me up to date with that campaign and for ensuring that I am continually aware of what St Vinnies is asking for from the Government so that I can be an ally in their campaign.
The pandemic has reminded us of our mutual obligations to care for each other as members of our community. The Government should look seriously at what Vinnies is suggesting—the creation of more social and affordable housing for those who need it in the community.”
