Jeff Harmer departs FaHCSIA. Any changes to the NT Intervention? #Aboriginal #Policy

The Prime Minister has also announced the retirement from the Australian Public Service of Jeff Harmer, head of  the Department of Families, Housing, Community Service and Indigenous Affairs.  Here is the article about Jeff Harmer from the Canberra Times of December 2005.

Please note, that his appointment to this department was eighteen months prior to the introduction of the ill-thought out and never-researched Intervention. I know it will not happen soon but some sort of biography, book of record or the like which included detailed discussion of The Intervention would be welcome, Jeff.  Please don't drop dead without telling us in the ins-and-outs of one of those most dreadful pieces of public policy since white settlement.
