The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (15:25): My question is to the minister representing the Minister for Human Services. Can the minister please respond to my letter of 4 February 2021 regarding the availability of housing and how Housing SA is assisting those with high lead levels in Port Pirie? With your leave, sir, and that of the house, I will explain further.

Leave granted.

The Hon. G.G. BROCK: I requested:

  • Current number of vacant and occupied Housing SA properties in Port Pirie with a breakdown of High/Med/Low lead risk area
  • Number of applicants on the waiting list for Port Pirie and each category with criteria
  • Approximate wait times for offer of a Housing SA property
  • Estimated amount of outstanding responsive maintenance requests
  • List of the 5 properties where SA Housing is trialling an upgrade to property features to reduce potential lead impact

The Hon. V.A. CHAPMAN (Bragg—Deputy Premier, Attorney-General, Minister for Planning and Local Government) (15:26): I think I am correct in recalling the question and also that recently I signed a response for it to come back to the parliament. As I am sure the member appreciates, there is a lot of information that was sought in that and I recall it being a fairly long answer, but I know I signed it in the last few days.
