To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament.

This Petition Of Certain Citizens Of Australia, who reside at Cumberland View Retirement Village, Wheelers Hill Victoria,  Draws the attention of the House to the inadequacy of the Age Pension to provide a decent standard of living for older Australians. Older Australians need sufficient income to enable them to live healthy lives as active members of their communities.

We therefore ask the House to increase the Age Pension to guarantee a decent standard of living for those whose total income is inadequate to meet today’s costs of living

by Mrs Irwin (from 100 citizens)
