Mr ROBERTON (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Social Services) - If the honorable member knew his own business, he would know that, year by year and budget by budget, social services benefits have been increased and expanded by the present Government to meet changing circumstances. That has never happened under any previous government. In addition, year by year, the means test has been liberalized in order to extend these benefits to a greater range of people. Even further, social services generally have been expanded to include all sorts of services that were deemed by this government's predecessors to be utterly impossible.
