(1) applauds the statements of Canon Peter Hollingworth, Executive Director of the Brotherhood of St Laurence, describing the Government's proposed asset means test on pensioners as attacking those least able to bear the burden, representing the imposition of a wealth tax on the elderly and causing serious anxiety to the elderly; and

(2) calls upon the Government to forthwith abandon this proposal.
