Claims today, there's NO housing affordability crisis in the ranks of Federal Parliament.

A new study by the ABC shows the people charged with tackling the issue of spiraling house prices, both nationally and here on the Central Coast, are among the nation's most aggressive property investors.

96 per cent of Federal MPs own at least one home, and about half of those own at least one other investment property.

Central Coast-based Labor Senator Deborah O'Neill owns one residential home and five investment properties with locations including Copacabana NSW, Stanley and Alcomie TAS, Yorky's Knob QLD and Kingston ACT.

Member for Robertson Lucy Wicks owns one property, at Dee Why NSW.

While Dobell MP Emma McBride and Shortland MP Patrick Conroy own two apiece, at Norah Head NSW, The Entrance NSW and Speers Point NSW, Kingston ACT respectively.
