41 With regard to my recommendations, PWC provided the following update: PWC provided support and input into the Town Camps Review as relevant. Now that the Towns Camp Report has been published, PWC looks forward to engaging with government and other stakeholders on reviewing, and where possible and appropriate, implementing the recommendations. Since your report, PWC has been in contact with the Aboriginal Development Foundation and its representative Yilli Housing to address debt management. Notwithstanding the action discussed above, the situation in relation to the particular community does not appear to have progressed. I am advised that the corporate body for the community (BCI) remains in administration and that, while PWC has responded to queries from the administrator, it has not been possible for PWC to engage with BCI directly on water and sewerage charges. PWC also advises that since 2016, it has not received any payments from community residents via Centrelink arrangements. This runs directly counter to the theme of individual choice and responsibility that I stressed in my report. My Office will continue to seek updates on progress in relation to both the specific case and the more general issues.
