Time to come clean on the NDIS
Senator Mitch Fifield, Shadow Minister for Disabilities:
“The primary legislation which has passed the parliament does have a broad outline of the eligibility of the National Disability Insurance Scheme but the Government have yet, to date, release the full NDIS rules, the regulations, and the Government have yet to release the NDIS assessment tool.
“Now, assessment tools and rules aren't a theoretical exercise, they're not a theoretical mechanism if you're a parent of a child with a disability or if you're an adult with a disability. They are fundamental to determining the sort of support you have and also the sort of opportunities that you will have in your life.
“So, we do, with the greatest of respect and in a cooperative spirit, ask the Government to release those details now.”
