RELEASE

PENSIO NER S W ILL BE COMPENSATED

Dr Blewett's attempts to frighten retirees receiving overseas pensions will not work.

The amount of compensation set aside in Fightbackl ensured that all pensioners and low income earners including those receiving overseas pensions will be compensated for the effect of the GST.

Dr Hewson has made a public pledge that no pensioner will be

worse off as a result of the Fightbackl package and this

commitment will be met.

In designing the tax reform package it was one cf the top

priorities of the Coalition to ensure that Australia's aged would be appropriately and properly compensated.
