Royal Commission into home insulation

A royal commission into the home insulation scheme started this week.

This is rather strange. We looked at that here.

We found the number of fires in houses was around TEN times less under the program.

Safety definitely improved.
No matter whether you used Possum's numbers, The CSIRO or did a simple Z test you found there was a significant difference between industry practice BEFORE and AFTER the Home Insulation program.

That being the case then why would you have a Royal Commission into the program?

One obvious answer is the government is not concerned at that much with spending money!

The other is the government is all about the politics of the scheme.
