Matter of Public Importance

The Council to Homeless Persons report in their latest eNews that the Victorian Parliament debated homelessness as a 'matter of public importance'.

The debate was initiated by Greens MP Sam Hibbins with eleven MPs from across the floor of Parliament taking the opportunity to address the matter.

Many of the members who spoke mentioned their visits to homelessness services and the impact that had had on their understanding of the issues.

The entire discussion is worthy of a read in Hansard pp. 54-77. 

The Council to Homeless Persons thanked all MPs for their thoughtful contributions, and the passion and concern they demonstrated about homelessness.
