Bruce Crawford I get that point.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bruce Crawford How soon does the Government need to produce the guidance to allow things to move on?



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bruce Crawford It is an interesting time, so soon after the 2013 act has been passed, to look into self-directed support.
