National Talkblack 191020

We had:

Anthony Beven, Grant Thornton Australia Partner giving an update on the Stolen Wages Settlement. The Federal Court has extended the time for claimants and registered representatives to provide claim data to the administrators to 5.00pm on 9 October 2020. For more information:

Shane Hryhorec, Managing Director of Push Mobility discussing how CSIRO research confirms COVID-19 can be detected on surfaces like wheelchair wheels for up to 30 days which leaves Australians with a disability more vulnerable as wheelchair users touch their wheels more than 1000 times per day.

Claire Fryer, Climate and Energy Campaigner at the Queensland Conservation Council talking about the Queensland Conservation Council’s path to a 100% renewable Queensland. The Queensland Conservation Council is calling on the next Queensland government to “implement a well managed plan to replace dirty coal with renewables and to stop throwing hundreds of millions of dollars at ageing coal-fired power stations just to keep them operational.”
