Aged and Community Services Australia also welcomed the announcement, stating that the changes will 'free-up time to focus on the care of the residents'. You will be pleased to know, Mr President, that as part of our five-year Healthy Life, Better Ageing Agreement, which we will be negotiating with the sector, we will have as a focus further reduction of red tape in the aged-care sector. We want people who work in aged care, the providers, to focus on what matters and that is providing good-quality care. (Time expired)
