CSSA CHA Submission Welfare Reform Bill 2017 Final

This is a joint submission from Catholic Social Services Australia (CSSA) and Catholic Health Australia (CHA). Our comments are made in association with the detailed submission of St Vincent’s Health Australia, the forefront hospital and health provider in the treatment of drug addiction, and a member of CHA.

Both CSSA and CHA are strongly opposed to compulsory drug testing in trial sites (Schedule 12) and measures that target people with drug and alcohol addiction (Schedule 13 and 14). We also oppose the punitive measures proposed under the targeted compliance framework (Schedule 15).
