Mr GREGORY (Swan) .- Whilst approving of the Government proposal to increase the value of property which may be possessed without affecting the oldage pension, I should like to direct attention to the fact that a few nights ago I pointed out that in connexion with soldiers' pensions, the Commissioner of Pensions has decided that if a pensioner is possessed of property to the value of £100 he is supposed to have adequate means of support. I should like the Treasurer to direct the attention of those who have charge of soldiers' pensions to the provision with respect to property which is contained in this Bill.
