Budget estimates time. For political nerds it’s a little bit of heaven. Full scrutiny of government with a little bit of argy-bargy or Oscar-worthy theatrics thrown in for comic relief.
Yesterday the National Disability Insurance Agency, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission and the Department of Social Services all appeared before the Senate inquiry into the government’s management of the COVID19 pandemic.
Who remembers this?
The National Disability Strategy was a ten-year plan that came out in 2010.
It was the first time all levels of Australian governments had come together to make a plan like this for ALL people with disability, ALL over Australia.
