Shadow Minister for Housing Michael Hart has urged the Palaszczuk Labor Government to negotiate a new National Partnership Agreement on Remote and Indigenous Housing with the Coalition Government.
Mr Hart said the previous agreement expired almost a year ago and it was time for Annastacia Palaszczuk to get on with the job.
"A new agreement would address a pressing housing issue for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in remote communities," Mr Hart said.
"Before the election, the Coalition Government had a funding offer on the table but the Palaszczuk Labor Government has continued to play silly political games.
"The Palaszczuk Labor Government have repeatedly lied to indigenous communities about their own funding commitment.
"Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to prioritise the critical housing needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in remote communities.
"We've already seen an allocation of $550 million for Indigenous Housing thanks to a new National Agreement between the Commonwealth and the Northern Territory State Government.
"The Palaszczuk Labor Government's inability to work with the Coalition Government shows how arrogant and out of touch they are."
Mr Hart said the Coalition Government had offered to provide a payment of $105 million to bypass the Palaszczuk Labor Government and give funding directly to local councils.
"Annastacia Palaszczuk snubbed numerous Commonwealth offers on a genuine housing partnership, so now the Coalition Government is dealing directly with the councils to deliver housing," Mr Hart said.
"The Palaszczuk Labor Government's inaction when it comes to addressing over-crowding and homelessness in remote indigenous communities is shameful.
"This is another clear example of Labor stalling to make decisions in the lead-up to the federal election.
"I am urgently calling on Annastacia Palaszczuk to re-visit the funding arrangements with the Coalition Government and negotiate in good faith."
