Mr CLEAVER (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I wish to ask the Minister for Social Services a question re lating to the payment of £105,406 last year by his department in the form of compassionate allowances. As in the making of these payments there is inherent recognition of the fact that some people in particular need cannot satisfy all the statutory requirements for a benefit, are his senior officers in each State specifically encouraged to submit for his ministerial approval cases which are beyond their own authority?
