本周早些时候，议会通过了建立家庭住房保障的立法。这意味着从 7 月 1 日起，该计划将对新申请者开放，让单亲父母有机会以 2% 的首付购买家庭住宅。这将帮助这些家庭越过存款障碍，更快地进入自己的家。
同样在 7 月 1 日，首次住房贷款存款计划将提供 10,000 个新名额，而新住房保障计划也将提供另外 10,000 个名额，为寻求建造新房的首次购房者提供担保。这两项计划都使首次购房者能够以 5% 的首付购买房屋。
新的就业数据证实我们的经济复苏继续引领世界。上个月，失业率从 4 月份的 5.5% 降至 5.1%。 5 月份创造了 115,200 个工作岗位——其中 85% 是全职工作——这是失业率连续第 7 个月下降，表明政府的经济计划在疫情大流行期间继续获得成功。
本周 COVID-19 疫苗的推出计划达到了一个新的里程碑，
至今已经接种 700 万剂疫苗。有关疫苗推出的更多信息，请访问 health.gov.au/covid19-vaccines。
14th - 24th June 2021
Earlier this week, Parliament passed legislation establishing the Family Home Guarantee. This means from 1st July the scheme will be open for new applicants, providing single parents the opportunity to purchase a family home with a deposit of 2 per cent. This will help these families jump the deposit hurdle and into their own home sooner.
Also on 1st July, 10,000 new places will become available under the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme, while an additional 10,000 places will also be available under the New Home Guarantee which provides guarantees for first home buyers seeking to build a new home. Both schemes enable first time buyers to purchase a home with a deposit of 5 per cent.
New jobs figures confirm that our economic recovery continues to lead the world. Last month, the unemployment rate fell to 5.1%, down from 5.5% in April. With 115,200 jobs created in May - 85% of which were full-time - this is the 7th consecutive monthly fall in unemployment and shows the Government's economic plan continues to deliver during the pandemic.
The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination hit a new milestone this week, with
7 million doses now administered. More information about the vaccine rollout can be found by visiting health.gov.au/covid19-vaccines.
Finally, Parliament has also now passed legislation I introduced that will establish a mandatory motor vehicle information sharing scheme. The scheme will ensure independent automotive service and repair businesses will get access to the technical information they need to repair your car, allowing you to choose where you go for a service.
