The Australian Greens are urging the Western Australian Government to not stall any longer on signing up to the national redress scheme, particularly as it is the last state or territory to sign up.
Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert, said:
“Survivors of child sexual abuse in Western Australia are the final group around the country waiting for confirmation that they will have access to redress.
“This is causing unnecessary distress and survivors have been through enough”.
WA Greens MLC Alison Xamon, said:
“I understand remaining issues have been finalised between the WA and Federal Government so I do not think we should be stalling any longer.
“I urge both Governments to finalise the process of getting WA on board as a matter of urgency”.
