Mrs Markus asked the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, in writing, on 25 February 2010:

When will the Government release its response to Sealing a just outcome: Report on the inquiry into RAAF F-111 Deseal/Reseal workers and their families (Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade, Canberra, June 2009).

Mr Griffin (Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister for Defence Personnel) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

The Government announced its response to the Report in the 2010-11 Federal Budget with a package of some $55m over four years to address the recommendations in the Committee’s Report. I tabled the Government’s response in Parliament on Thursday, 13 May 2010.

The Government has accepted 14 of the 18 recommendations, some in modified form, one partially and some with enhancements.
