Mr MINOGUE (WEST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Social Services. Will he consider paying an extra 5s. a week to all age and invalid pensioners who are unable to work or earn any money and are dependent on the pension of £5 a week or less? I appreciate the effect of the merged means test, but nothing has been achieved for the base pensioners, who comprise 65 per cent, of pensioners in this country.
