The Fisheries Ministry has just been hit with a $3,000,000 compensation bill that will be paid out to (ONLY 3) fisherman that were subjected to blatant disentitlement to (scampy) fishing quoters.

It is clear that there was intentional political interference in the process that saw these fisherman (disentitled) cut out of their right to sustainable quoters. As a result they have been financially ruined and are therefore quite rightly entitled to be fully compensated.

Much of what we see happening within the DISENTITLEMENT POLICIES of the ACC runs very parallel to what has happen in this particular situation with these fisherman. Remember there are only 3 of them. There are thousands and thousands of intentionally disentitled accident victims.

This decision is at least a little light at the end of the tunnel and is a very good indication that inevitably the Government will be held accountable for the intentional disentitlement of accident victims (Its just a matter of time).

I am lucky enough to be able to watch and listen to parliament

during a normal working day.[prefer to work] .

When you spend time thinking, slowly understanting what they say,
what they don't say, I think things are changing, more about the non-
belief of the 'state line' spin, hense what they say, is now more questioned,
by the continual loss of belief and' to' prevent failure of the common
man. :angry: :angry: :angry:

Final Report
Summary of Consultation on the Cost of Treatment Regulations

Prepared for Accident Compensation Corporation

23 September 2003

The Government has decided to increase some of the payments available to ACC claimants for treatment. Ministers have determined the priority areas for the increased funding, which was appropriated through the Government Budget.

The additional funding means that changes are required to the regulations. The changes are consequently subject to the regulation making process, which requires public consultation. ACC has therefore taken the opportunity to at the same time consult on some other aspects of the current regulations

If you do not have a community service card and need an x-ray there is a $15.00 surcharge ....that come in on 1 October 2003 :(
