                      I asked and posted this question about the NDIS and the plight of aging parents with children with a disability to Q&A. It was aired on 20th Feb 2012. Following my question are a range of responses from the panel including Bill Shorten (Labor) and Julie Bishop. (Liberal). A further question from the floor kept the NDIS issue alive and kicking for a while longer.
