LEICHHARDT MP Warren Entsch has today slammed the ALP’s candidate for Leichhardt, Billy Gordon, for his inaccurate and politically motivated comments about the DisabilityCare rollout.
“In a media release today, Billy Gordon made misleading claims that the Coalition will withdraw funding from the NDIS,” Mr Entsch said. “This is simply not true.
“It’s well established that both I, and the Coalition, are 100 per cent committed to DisabilityCare, and we are looking forward to its rollout in June 2016.
“This is the one issue where both major parties should be firmly united, so it’s disappointing to see Billy Gordon trying to play politics with something that will improve the lives of so many people,” Mr Entsch said.
