How we consulted with you

Last updated:

We value your feedback

It was important that we heard from veterans and their families, and other key stakeholders, about the proposed legislation changes. 

Comments on the draft legislation closed on 28 April 2024.

The Australian Government will consider all of the feedback it received during the consultation period before it introduces the Bill into the Parliament. 

Any further questions on the draft legislation can be forwarded to legislation.reform [at]  


Public webinars were conducted to discuss the proposed legislation changes and seek feedback on 3, 9 and 17 April. 

A recording of the 9 April 2024 webinar is available for viewing along with a copy of the PowerPoint presentation and answers to the questions asked.

Information sessions

Information sessions were held in all State and Territory capitals, and Townsville with ex-service organisations and members of DVA’s National Consultation Framework forums.
