The Independent Member for Denison, Andrew Wilkie, will ask the Prime Minister the following in Question Time today.

“Prime Minister the National Disability Insurance Scheme is obviously an important reform, and in principle I support budget measures to better fund it.

“However my constituents tell me the scheme has many problems. For instance they talk about an impenetrable and impersonal bureaucracy, as well as hopeless delays with Internal Reviews which lead to unnecessary distress and frustration for families.

“Prime Minister, if ever there was a government program that just had to be user friendly, this is it. So what will you do to better respond to community concerns? What will you do to ensure the NDIS works effectively for all people with disabilities, and for their families?”

WHEN: Approximately 2:15pm TODAY 9 August
