Greens co-leader Chlöe Swarbrick on Govt changes to emergency housing

From Morning Report, 8:21 am on 2 April 2024

The Green Party is furious at the Housing Minister for refusing to guarantee that the Government's changes to emergency housing won't lead to more homelessness.

The Coalition last month announced that officials would take a stricter approach to allowing tenants into emergency housing in the first place.

The Greens say more people will end up homeless as a result, and when they asked Chris Bishop to guarantee it wouldn't, he replied, "no Minister can guarantee anything."

Green Party co-leader Chlöe Swarbrick spoke to Corin Dann.
