Opposition Leader calls for Parliamentary Committee on NDIS

Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says there needs to be a bi-partisan parliamentary committee set up to discuss the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The gap is widening between the conservative state governments and the Federal government, on who should fund the scheme, which Prime Minister Julia Gillard has already allocated $1 billion to.

The Victorian, NSW, Queensland and West Australian governments say they don’t have funding for the scheme and it should come from the federal government.

But Mr Abbott says the politics need to be eliminated from the situation.
