Senator KEANE (Victoria) (Minister for Trade and Customs) .- I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to leave out of the definition of " Income" the word" child " with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words" son or daughter ".

The object is to make it clear that gifts or allowances received by claimants from any of their children, whether over or under the age of sixteen years, shall not be taken into account as income in determining the rate of pension. As the clause stands at present the exemption would have applied only to gifts or allowances received from children under sixteen years of age, for the reason that the word"child " is defined as a child under the age of sixteen.
