2007 Pre Budget Submission
Issued on October 3 2007
Budget 2007 provides this Government with the final opportunity to deliver its outstanding commitments in the Agreed Programme for Government 2002-2006.
In Budget 2005 the Government committed to sustained investment in the disability sector through the National Disability Strategy and multi annual funding packages. Budget 2007 also represents an opportunity for Government to invest in the commitments made in the National Disability Strategy and more recently in 'Towards 2016'.
In recent Pre Budget Submissions DFI has consistently pursued a number of key issues which can make a significant difference in the everyday lives of people with disabilities. We have continued to advocate around these issues and have been consistent in our resolve to bring them to the attention of Government at all opportunities. While recognising the significant commitments made in 'Towards 2016', DFI again pursues these issues in Budget 2007.
