The federal government insists a missed deadline on a plan to roll out the national disability insurance scheme does not mean it will be put off.
States and territories were on Monday due to sign bilateral agreements setting out assistance packages for more than 400,000 Australians with disabilities.
Labor has accused the government of dragging its feet on the negotiations, saying the missed deadline indicates the full scheme could also be delayed.
Assistant Social Services Minister Mitch Fifield says negotiations are going well.
“This does not impact on our ability to begin transition to full rollout from July 2016,” he told AAP in a statement.
