Former disability discrimination commissioner Graeme Innes outraged by Government’s wind farm role

Australia’s first blind disability discrimination commissioner says the Federal Government has sent the wrong message by proposing the establishment of a wind farms commissioner, a year after axing his former role.

The Government terminated the position of disability discrimination commissioner when lawyer Graeme Innes ended his term last year.

Mr Innes said he was shocked by the Government’s proposal to create a national wind farms commissioner and said it showed where Australians with disabilities fell in the “pecking order”.
