home insulation scheme inquiry More important to Abbott than royal commission into child sexual abuse

LABOR is demanding an explanation over why the Abbott government moved $4 million from the royal commission into child sexual abuse to an inquiry into the botched pink batts scheme.

The Attorney-General’s Department has confirmed the money was redirected into the former government’s home insulation royal commission.

During a Senate Estimates hearing in February, Labor Senator Kim Carr asked Attorney-General George Brandis whether there had been any “offset in any other royal commission”.

“No,” the Senator replied, before it was decided to take the question on notice.

In a now released published response, the Department has confirmed $4 million was moved from one to the other.

“$4 million was redirected from savings achieved in the 2013-14 capital budget of the Royal

Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (RCIRCSA),” it states.

Another $2.7 million came from funding set aside to help pay the legal costs of witnesses, but wasn’t used in 2013/14.

Shadow Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus said Senator Brandis had tried to “conceal” the decision to redirect money.

“We need the government to say ‘we are going to adequately fund this royal commission’. ‘We are going to ensure it is able to adequately complete its task’,” Mr Dreyfus told reporters this morning.

The government insists the royal commission into child sexual abuse has the funding it needs.

Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and former Ministers Peter Garrett, Greg Combet and Mark Arbib all appeared before the insulation inquiry earlier this month, looking into the scheme which led to four deaths.

Typical RWinger, better spend millions attacking your imaginary(at least much exaggerated) enemies than Fighting Child Abuse  Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad 

Political points over people.

That is an absolutely shocking decision and whoever is responsible for it should be ashamed of themselves.
The electorate should be reminded who these people are the very next time an election comes round and they have the cheek to come knocking on doors asking for people to vote for them.

cyclops 

TONY RABBITT claims that his little mate Joey "The Axe" Hockey told him that they don't have any loose change left in their kitty, after paying Uncle Ruppert $880 million Pacific Pesos for his pre-election propaganda efforts...

AND YET they are still willing to waste $millions$ on a meaningless "Royal Commission" to attempt to bash Labor a little bit further..    pirat

The thing that kills me about the right wing is they really think there's nothing they can do that is beyond the pale; they're so religious in their political beliefs they've become like the people who think it's OK to lie if it brings somebody closer to Jesus ...

I always tell them, if I want to be closer to Jesus I just go next door and play video games with him, or his wife, Juanita ...
