Yesterday the final phase of the Veterans' Affairs Legislation Amendment (Budget Measures) Bill 2022 was passed by the Senate.

The TPI Federation thanks Shayne Neumann MP who instigated the Senate Inquiry in 2019 into the TPI Compensation Payment. Many other MPs and Senators, past and present, also assisted the TPI Federation of the 10 years of our campaign. Thanks must go especially to Senators Lambie and Molan for their persistence and the more recent support of Barnaby Joyce MP, Phil Thompson MP, Gavin Pearce MP and Andrew Wilkie MP.

Yesterday the support in the Senate by Senators Davey, Shoebridge, Cadell and Cox was appreciated. Their comments yesterday can be found at - - on pages 37-42.

To gain a mere $2.74 per day (that starts on 1 Jan 23) as a reward to see some justice for our long campaign, is appreciated.

Senator Shoebridge stated yesterday that the Senators needed to "commit collectively to coming back next year and start by doubling it”. Hopefully the Parliament sees fit for this to occur.

So - the fight continues! Your Federation will continue to work for you.
