Disability royal commission must be extended, advocates say

Published

Disability groups have renewed calls for a 17-month extension to the disability royal commission, warning there is not enough time left for the inquiry to conduct its investigations thoroughly given the delays caused by COVID-19.

People with Disability Australia (PWDA) has launched a new campaign urging people to contact Attorney-General Michaelia Cash and ask for an inquiry extension, which would move the commission’s end date from April next year to 29 September 2023.

This request was first made by commission chair Ronald Sackville AO QC amid the release of the interim report in November last year.
