“Last year when the country was in the grip of the pandemic and the economy was locked down, Master Builders in conjunction with the CFMEU, called for a $10 billion social housing stimulus fund,” Denita Wawn, CEO of Master Builders Australia said.
“The Opposition Leader and the Shadow Minister for Housing and Homelessness have listened. We applaud the Opposition’s $10 billion social and affordable housing fund,” she said.
“While we look forward to seeing much more detail, Master Builders welcomes the Opposition’s commitment to setting up agencies and structures to focus on jobs, skills and manufacturing. As the industry with the largest economic multiplier effect, we would hope there is an emphasis on responding to the needs of the building and construction sector,” Denita Wawn said.
