Senator GRIMES (Minister for Social Security)(11.53) —The answer is that the honourable senator is right. We were talking about invalid pensions and the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. Later on Mr Skehill brought up the matter of the Social Security Appeals Tribunal. The seminar was held to deal with invalid pension appeals and invalid pensions. That is why the answer was given in that way. I find it hard, even reading the Hansard, now to expect the officers to think the question meant all seminars held in the Department, because that is the matter with which we were dealing at the time. The questions were answered by Mr Mahoney and Mr Skehill. It seems to me it was about that matter. I have no reason not to let Senator Walters know what seminars were held and where they were held. We can find that out.
