Senator WEBSTER (VICTORIA) -My question which is directed to the Leader of the Government in the

Senate, follows his comment in answer to a question relating to Labor's interest in pensioners which he acknowledged is quite great at this time. I ask the Leader of the Government in the Senate- I have asked the Minister representing the Minister for Social Security without getting any answer at all- whether he is concerned that under Labor the base pension at this time is less as a percentage of average weekly earnings than it was prior to Labor coming to office. I will give the Minister a chance to get some information before he answers the question.
