Disability royal commission terms of reference lacking critical aspects, Jordan Steele-John says

A two week consultation process has now opened for a Royal Commission into the mistreatment of Australians with a disability. The government has released broad draft terms of reference covering the abuse, exploitation and neglect of people in a number of settings — including schools, workplaces, homes, hospitals and even the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Greens Senator for Western Australia,  Jordon Steele-John says, “It’s really lacking in some critical aspects around investigation, prosecution and redress.”
