Mr Buckley,

 

Thank you for providing me with a copy of your correspondence.  Unfortunately I cannot see the attachment from the Attorney General.  Would you please be able to provide me with a copy?

 

While I have not recently been in contact with you, as previously discussed we are currently reviewing the AAT’s NDIS practice and procedures.  To date we have undertaken consultation within the AAT (Members, Conference Registrars, District Registrars, Executive Deputy Presidents and registry case officers).  Once that feedback is collated we will then undertake external consultation.  I have specifically instructed the reviewers to include your advocacy organisation in the invitation to provide feedback, and you will be contacted in due course.

 

Yours sincerely
