To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of certain citizens of Australia

Draws the attention of the House to the inadequacy of the Age Pension to pro-vide a decent standard of living for older Australians. Older Australians need sufficient income to enable them to live healthy lives as active members of their com-munities.

We therefore ask the House to increase the Age Pension to guarantee a decent standard of living for those whose total income is inadequate to meet today’s costs of living.

by Mrs Irwin (from 37 citizens)
