Senator BISHOP (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Social Services. When is the Minister likely to review the provisions relating to social service benefits as applied to inmates of mental and associated convalescent hospitals, which provisions deny to those patients direct pension payments? Does the Minister consider that there is a special case for normal social service payments in instances of satisfactory recovery of good health and where a patient performs various light duties beneficial to himself and to the institution?
