NDIS probe call

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

FORMER La­bor Leader Bill Shorten has call­ing for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into re­ports that funds un­der the Na­tional Dis­abil­ity In­sur­ance Scheme are be­ing wasted by providers on lav­ish din­ners and five-star ho­tels.

Mr Shorten, now op­po­si­tion spokesman for the NDIS, said the rev­e­la­tions “should at least be in­ves­ti­gated”. “The prob­lem with the NDIS and the peo­ple at the top is this is a sys­tem where no one is run­ning it, it’s adrift, it’s a run­away train,” he said.
