National Health Amendment (Decisions under the Continence Aids Payment Scheme) Bill 2021

The National Health Amendment (Decisions under the Continence Aids Payment Scheme) Bill 2021 will reform the review of decisions made under the Continence Aids Payment Scheme Instrument, conferring review functions of decisions to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. This will allow for Australians who are using the CAPS program, or their nominated representative, to apply for an independent merits review by the AAT for decisions made under the program. It's a commonsense reform, and I commend the bill to the House.

The ABC's failed complaints system

I think we have all had enough of reading report after report about the ABC's failed complaints handling processes. I welcome the statements by those opposite that the ABC should have independent complaints handling. Let's work together to make this happen.
