Labor joins Government to squash ACFI referral


“It is disappointing that Labor has voted with Government to stop cuts to the Aged Care Funding Instrument being referred to the Community Affairs References Committee”, Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert said today.

“We need time to assess the impacts that these cuts will have on the aged care sector.

"We have heard from consumers and providers in the sector of their deep concerns about the impact of the Government cuts, they need full and careful review through the committee process.

"This is not the last attempt I will make to get these cuts reviewed", said Senator Siewert.
