Mr PERKINS (Eden Monaro) (9:54 AM) . - I agree with the honorable member for Hunter (Mr. James) that provision should be made for invalid children over sixteen years of age who are maintained by their relatives.

Mr James - Although a daughter may be caring for an invalid mother, no allowance, is made for her.

Mr PERKINS - The Social Security Committee, of which I was a member, made a recommendation to the Government on this subject. I confess that I was greatly disappointed when I found that, apparently, no notice had been taken of that recommendation.

The CHAIRMAN (Mr. Prowse).The honorable member's remarks would be more appropriate to clause 23.

Mr PERKINS - I appeal to the Minister to make provision for such cases. What is the use of a committee making a recommendation after an exhaustive examination if its recommendation is to be set aside?
