Senator CASH (Western AustraliaMinister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Public Service, Minister for Employment and Minister for Women) (18:48): Senator Cameron, I have to ask you which payment you're actually referring to.

Senator Cameron: The wife pension.

Senator CASH: Senator Cameron, you are right: these recipients are no longer eligible for any other social security payment as they are under age pension age and, based on available information, would not be eligible for another payment under an international agreement or a portable agreement. If these recipients returned to Australia they may be eligible for the jobseeker payment.
