Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) (3:24 PM) —Mr Speaker, in question time today I was asked a question by the member for Lilley regarding some comments of Senator Vanstone's in rel-ation to the question of recovery of Centrelink debts. I have been advised that there have been no cases where people have had to sell the family home to repay debts to Centrelink.


Mr Swan —Mr Speaker, I seek leave to table the report of Senator Vanstone's comments about requesting pensioners to take out loans and garnisheeing their funeral benefits.

Leave not granted.
