Whilst I agree we should give Mr Skidmore a fair go, it is entirely approriate for forthright representation of the widespread disatisfaction to be conveyed to the new DAS. It is unlikely he is not aware of it, but there will be other "stakeholders" who will want to maintain the status quo.
There will doubtlessly be a number a people in CASA who will be in his ear saying the complaints are unwarrented whining and bleating from the industry and private operators, and there is no need to change the fine work of his predecessor.
We need to be very clear in continuing our representation that major change is vital and warranted, and needed early. Hopefully, Senator Fawcett et al will be able to assist in emphasising this.
Again, an effective and INDEPENDENT complaints avenue is vital, and one that has direct access to the DAS.
