Senator TOWNLEY —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate-

(a) recognises that Mr Hawke, the Socialist Prime Minister is the mastermind of the assets test;

(b) condemns the assets test's cruel impact on Australia's elderly; and

(c) urges the Government to reconsider the proposal so as to avoid causing confusion amongst those already retired and about to retire.
