I table a response to a question taken on notice during question time on 11 May 2021, by Senator Kitching, relating to the National Disability Insurance Scheme. I seek leave to have the document incorporated in Hansard.

Leave granted.

The answer read as follows—

Senator the Hon Scott Ryan

President of the Senate

Parliament House


Dear Mr President

Please find enclosed responses to questions asked by Senator the Hon Kimberley Kitching taken on notice during question time on 11 May 2021.

Yours sincerely

Linda Reynolds
