BILL SHORTEN, MINISTER FOR THE NDIS AND GIVERNMENT SERVICE: Good morning. It’s great to be here with Senator Malarndirri McCarthy and Minister Ngaree Ah Kit at the opening of this amazing facility for people with profound and severe disability.

The Northern Territory is doing some great innovation for people, for Territorians who live with disability. This house today represents a $1.2 million investment. It’s cooperative between the Albanese Government, the Northern Territory Government and what it’s going to do is provide safe, quality housing for Territorians who have special needs. It’s a great effort by Carpentaria Services who will be running the house and making sure everything is working as it should. And congratulations to the builders to have done such quality construction effort.
