    meanwhile the NSW STATE GOVT…is ‘at it’ too…’The figures include some 4000 sales of property owned by the Department of Family and Community Services, money that the department has committed to spend on building new social housing’
    ‘Another $1 billion in sales is forecast for the coming three years, the committee was told, taking the total projected sales under the government to about $10 billion over its two terms in power.

    In total the government’s “asset recycling program” of selling off assets to invest in infrastructure has led the government to divest itself of more than 20,000 properties, a figure that excludes the last financial year.’James Robertson.
