Mr ROBERTON (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Social Services) - I shall be very pleased to give favorable .consideration, if I can, to the request of the honorable member for Perth. I appreciate the difficulties of the blind in all circumstances. Normally, it is possible for those who are in receipt df social services benefit to be temporarily absent from Australia without prejudice to their pension, and I will see whether the same consideration can be given to the blind.
