Premier Barnett out of touch about NDIS


The Australian Greens have accused WA Premier Colin Barnett of being out of touch with his constituents.


Senator Rachel Siewert has called on the WA Premier to get out of his office and go and talk to people with a disability.


“He will quickly find that there is strong support for a NDIS in WA," Senator Siewert, Greens Spokesperson on Disability Services said.


"Mr Barnett is clearly out of touch will the disability sector in WA and obviously didn’t attend the Every Australian Counts rally earlier this year, where Western Australians made it very clear they want a NDIS.


"I call on Mr Barnett to get behind a NDIS and engage in the development of what could be a benchmark in world practice,” Senator Siewert concluded.
