Dear Minister Ruston,

I doubt I have ever seen a NDIS Plan review that omitted some explicit claim that some essential support was "not value for money". Your claim on #QandA was incorrect. Either you know this is happening all the time, or you should know.

The disability sector needs far better from its Ministers.
