Hi all, just had the following reply to my e-mail asking for clarification to the situation, its not really that helpful, so now I guess we wait to be told more end of Oct.
"The ASPC is developing procedures to process applications in accordance
with the new Government Direction that has been announced effective 23
September. CSL cases will be given the highest priority and that is where
the ASPC will be focussing its attention. Once the ASPC has established
processing arrangements for CSL cases, we will be in a position to provide
further advice, which, hopefully can be done by the end of October 2009".
Just to add, I have today e-mailed the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to express my anger at the changes that have now been put into place, I said that they should give everyone their money back for their medicals, Police Checks etc that will be out of date if we are put on hold until 2012. I already know it will do me no good, but I did feel better for letting off some steam!
