Request to wipe WA state housing debt

Liam Bartlett

WA has approached the Federal Government asking the Commonwealth to wipe the state’s housing debt.

Western Australia currently owes around 350 million dollars to the Federal Government for social housing built in the 1980’s – and pay around 30 million dollars a year in repayments.

The Commonwealth has previously wiped a similar debt for Tasmania.
