Energy Supplement


Ms MACKLIN (Jagajaga) (14:38): My question is to the Minister for Social Services. How many existing pensioners will lose the energy supplement under this government's plan to cut support to pensioners?


Mr TEHAN (WannonMinister for Social Services) (14:38): I thank the member for her question. Can I say that we on this side have no policy that will see us reintroduce the carbon tax. We do not believe that we need an energy supplement that was brought in because of the carbon tax. If you on that side have secret plans to reintroduce the carbon tax then you should do so.

Ms Macklin: Mr Speaker—

The SPEAKER: Has the minister concluded his answer?

Mr TEHAN: I have.
