"I am pleased that the Senate has expressed its ongoing support for survivors of child sexual abuse.
"When we have high profile child sexual abuse cases being discussed in the media it is more important than ever that we send a clear message of support for survivors.
"We must support and encourage survivors to keep coming forward.
"It’s important that the Parliament reiterates its support for survivors of child sexual abuse and commit itself to the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
"I urge the Government to accept the recommendations of the Interim Report of the Joint Select Committee on the Implementation of the National Redress Scheme and act to ensure that the Redress scheme delivers for survivors."
