Mr McGauran to present a bill for an act to encourage the voluntary disclosure and exchange of information about year 2000 computer problems and remediation efforts, and for other purposes.

Mr Mossfield to move—

That this House:

(1) notes that 1999 is the International Year of the Older Persons;

(2) notes the large number of middle-aged persons who have been retrenched in Aus tralia and who have little chance of obtaining further employment;

(3) recognises that aged care services should provide a continuity of care in which services come to the people;

(4) further recognises that many older persons who have been retrenched will have used up their superannuation entitlements by retiring age and will need to fall back on the aged pension; and

(5) agrees that more work needs to be done to preserve Australian jobs, so that people are free to make their own retirement decisions based on quality of life issues rather than be forced to retire due to a management decision of their employer.
