Mr COLEMAN (Reid) .- I point out to the Treasurer that section 17 of the Act fixes the residential qualification for the ordinary old-age pension at twenty years. It is hardly reasonable from the stand-point of honorable members on this side of the Committee that the qualification in this case should be made twenty-five years. I also ask the Treasurer to reduce it by at least five years, thus bringing it into line.
