Federal election 2022: Anthony Albanese, Mark McGowan slam Liberal party’s superannuation for houses plan

Anthony Albanese says the Government’s new plan to get first home buyers to use their superannuation is an “attack on future generations” that will leave more people dependent on the pension when they retire.

The Labor Leader also claimed the Government’s scheme would push up property prices and that his own housing policy included plans to increase supply to stop this happening.

“The Government in its desperation has come up with a thought bubble yesterday that, according to itself has not been modelled,” Mr Albanese said at a press conference at Bentley Hospital in Perth today.

“Our policy includes the establishment of a housing supply and affordability council, working with Mark McGowan and other State premiers and chief ministers on how we have a national strategy to increase supply of housing.”

“The key is you’ve got to increase supply. If you want to deal with some of the housing affordability issues… we have a policy for 20,000 additional social housing dwellings, 10,000 affordable housing dwellings for essential workers, emergency housing for women and children escaping domestic violence.”
