Thank you Roy Butler MP for listening to the community's voice on this issue.

We hope Minister Houssos can respectfully understand how many homes and lives are impacted by this conversation.I share the community's concerns about any changes that impact the security of people living on residential mining claims.

These are people's homes; many have lived on these leases for a very long time. In the current climate with cost of living and housing shortages, anything that reduces the availability of homes doesn't make sense. It also creates significant anxiety for people who believe they would be able to stay on with existing arrangements.

I will be taking this up with Minister Courtney Houssos, to ensure that the review of the Act acknowledges the longstanding legal agreements for people who occupy these claims.
