National Disability Insurance Scheme

Ms SANDERSON ( Adelaide ) ( 15:03 ): My question is to the Minister for Education and Child Development. Has the government completed recommendation 223 of the Nyland royal commission, due for implementation by 31.3.2017, to ensure that every child in care, or who enters care or who is potentially eligible, applies to participate in the National Disability Insurance Scheme? The Hon. S.E. CLOSE ( Port Adelaide—Minister for Education and Child Development, Minister for Higher Education and Skills) (15:04): I will have to take that on notice to ensure that the delays in national disability haven't caused a delay in the implementation of that. Obviously, the intention is there, the agreement to it, but I will just have to confirm whether we have met that deadline. We are shortly to be providing a public update on where we are in the response to recommendations, and so that will be amongst those that we will make public.
