My question is to Senator Brandis, the Minister representing the Prime Minister. I refer to the Deputy Prime Minister, who on 25 January said in relation to housing affordability:

We believe that houses will always be incredibly expensive if you can see the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, just accept that.

What advice does the government have for people wanting to buy a home in Lidcombe, in the electorate of Reid, which has no views of the Opera House or the Harbour Bridge and where the median house price is $1,108,000?
