House of Reps passes NDIS bill

The House of Representatives has passed legislation to set up the Government's National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

 

The bill, which will allow the scheme to be launched from July, passed with the support of all MPs.

 

Disability Reform Minister Jenny Macklin broke down as she wound up her speech on the bill.

 

"This bill is an enormous step in ensuring people with disability, their families and carers, receive peace of mind," she said.

 

"It will bring an end to the tragedy of services denied or delayed and instead offer people with disability the care and support they need over their lifetimes.

 

"It will end the cruel lottery that besets people today, where the care and support they receive depends on where they live or how they acquired their disability."
