Mr CHIFLEY (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) - I do not know that there is any particular saving to be made by paying the money into savings bank accounts, but I am prepared to consider the honorable gentleman's proposal. I point out, however, that there is a wide difference of opinion amongst pensioners as to how they should be paid. Many of them like to draw the pension on a particular day. Apparently, for them it is a day out and they have an opportunity to meet their friends. They do not all want to have their pension paid by cheque or into a savings bank account.
