    †5    Mr Shorten : To move—That this House:

(1)         notes that:

(a)         there are real issues with consistency and fairness in NDIS access and planning decisions but there is not enough information available about the Government’s recently announced NDIS Independent Assessments (IA) to conclude it will address issues with consistency and fairness;

(b)         mandatory IA are not well supported (as the Government claims) by the findings of the 2019 Tune Review and the original Productivity Commission report;

(c)         there has been outcry about the lack of consultation and information available about IA among people with disability and disability advocates; and

(d)         there is evidence that IA may be a cover for the Government to restrict NDIS access and limit participant plans, and privatise the NDIS ‘by stealth’; and

(2)         calls on the Government to:

(a)         listen to participants and immediately pause the rollout of the current IA program;

(b)         hold a genuine, transparent consultation process to confirm what the issues are and trial different options;

(c)         co-design the solution best supported by evidence with participants, families, carers and the sector; and

(d)         make public all modelling, actuarial advice and evaluation reports used to support the chosen program, showing numbers of participants whose NDIS funding or eligibility will be impacted.
