Greens move to protect child dental
Richard Di Natale 7 Feb 2017
“Today I am moving to disallow the government’s harsh cuts to Medicare funded child dental care," Senator Richard Di Natale said today.
“Late last year the government took the axe to child dental – ripping $300 per child and dramatically reducing children's’ access to dental care.
“The Child Dental Benefits Schedule was a key win of the Green’s power sharing arrangement with the former Gillard Government.
“We will fight to protect it, and are calling on the Senate to support our disallowance.
“Medicare-funded dental care should be expanded – not cut from those most in need.”
