Veterans' Support Act to be reviewed

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 12/06/2017

Legislation covering the way war veterans are looked after is going to be reviewed to make sure it's working the way it's supposed to.

Auckland law professor Ron Paterson has been appointed to lead the independent review.

Veterans' Affairs Minister David Bennett says the review will look at whether the Veterans' Support Act is meeting its purpose in providing rehabilitation and support to veterans who have been injured or become ill as a result of being in harm's way.

The Act was introduced in 2014, replacing the War Pensions Act 1954.
