The Professor Ron Patterson report which provided 64 recommendations in a review of the Veterans Support Act was tabled in Parliament in May 2018.
Here is a record from the Hansard of the Oral Questions in Parliament which you may recall. Cick HERE
The Hansard identifies a number of areas which your Association will be following up in 2019. Recent correspondence indicates that the Minister of Veterans Affairs has only accepted one recommendation to which he has set up the Veterans Advisory Board to look at. This Board (which has no Naval Representation) has until 31 March 2019 to respond and we look forward to the outcome of their deliberations.
