Federal Court Hearing

We still don’t have a decision but received this from Justice Perry’s Associate:
“Justice Perry is aware that judgment has been outstanding for some time.
Unfortunately, while her Honour had intended to address this judgment over the

will give this matter appropriate priority. Chambers will be in contact with an
update in due course.”

Meeting with the new Defence Force Welfare Association (DFWA) President
In Canberra on 16 February 2023, we met with DFWA’s new President, Del Goudry. To try

misinformation being spread by the Minister’s office.

We encourage members to download these documents, send them to their local Members
of Parliament and Senators, and circulate them far and wide. The question which should be
asked is “Why is this allowed to continue?”
