Mr MACKAY (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Treasurer if it is a fact that old-age pensions are not paid to pensioners who are admitted to the hospitals while they remain inmates of those institutions. Does the right honorable gentleman believe it to be a proper thing to withhold pensions under these circumstances? If so, will he consider the advisability of paying the money to the treasurers of the hospitals, to assist in maintaining the pensioners?
