Mr SINCLAIR - As the honorable member for Evans has just said, the answer to the last part of the question asked by the Leader of the Opposition is to be found in " Hansard ". Many members on the Government side have frequently advocated the liberalisation of the means test and the extension of the pensioner medical service to all persons in receipt of pension benefits. The notable extension this year was made in accordance with this principle. Because of that extension, after 1st January next many people will be in a considerably better position with regard to medical and pharmaceutical benefits than they were previously.
