(Question No. 433)


Mr Barresi asked the Minister representing the Minister for Social Security, upon notice, on 20 June 1996:

On most recent data, how many Disability Support Pension recipients reside in the postcode areas of (a) 3130, (b) 3131, (c) 3132, (d) 3134, (e) 3135 and (f) the sections of postcode areas (i) 3153, (ii) 3133, (iii) 3136 and (iv) 3151 which lie in the electoral division of Deakin.


Mr Ruddock —The Minister for Social Security has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

The Department of Social Security (DSS) produces data on recipients of all DSS pension, benefits and family payments by postcode. The publication titled `Recipients of Pensions, Benefits and Family Payments in Postcode Districts' is produced on a quarterly basis and is publicly available. It is also available through the Parliamentary Library.

A copy of the publication and a diskette has also been forwarded separately to the honourable member.

DSS does not have data available on customer numbers by electoral division, however the Parliamentary Library has converted the DSS postcode data and has it available by electoral division.
