Questions without Notice
My question is to the Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Senator Scullion. Yesterday in question time, the minister claimed the Audit Office audit of the Indigenous Advancement Strategy 'makes very little commentary or evaluation of the success of the programs on the ground'. How does the minister reconcile his statement with the audit report, which specifically refers to failures to focus on and 'prioritise the needs of Indigenous communities'?
