Brandis: Chaplaincy decision won't affect other programs

THE High Court decision on a challenge to the national school chaplains' case will not affect other Commonwealth programs.

Speaking in the Senate on Thursday, Attorney-General George Brandis said other programs, including the $2.5 billion Roads to Recovery would remain.

After seeking the advice of his department, he clarified the case brought by Ron Williams against the program should not have wider implications.

However, other programs funded under similar mechanisms could be open to different challenges, as the Williams ruling, was specific to the chaplaincy program.
