Greens Call to Extend Royal Commission to Disability Sector

Published

Greens Senator Jordon Steele-John says he “will not rest” until the aged care royal commission is expanded to cover the disability sector, despite concerns this would “dilute” the effectiveness of the inquiry.

Steele-John unsuccessfully moved a motion on Wednesday to broaden the royal commission to include the abuse, neglect and violence of people with disability in institutional and residential settings.

He said a huge opportunity had been missed, and waiting longer for a separate, second royal commission would ultimately lead to more deaths in the disability community.
