Mr CADMAN —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) expresses its particular concern for the future of retirees with assets other than their house, cars, jewellery and boat;

(2) demands-

(a) detailed Government consideration of the equity between retirees with savings, investments, property or superannuation and their access to the pensioner health benefit card or the full pension; and

(b) the personal circumstances of home owners, renters and residents of nursing homes receive equitable attention; and

(3) deplores the fear, stress and apprehension being caused to retirees by the Government's consideration of an assets test; and

(4) requests the Government to abandon the proposal.
