Senator PETER BAUME(11.00) —I thank the Minister for Community Services (Senator Grimes). I am not going to pursue that matter any further. There are only a couple of matters in relation to the Department of Social Security that I would like to raise with the Minister. The first one is a fairly brief matter. There has been some concern expressed that the introduction of disability services legislation may be delayed. This relates to the payment of certain benefits to certain beneficiaries. Can the Minister give us some indication of the timing of this legislation, as it is of interest to some of our constituents? Perhaps the Minister can respond to that first and I will then raise the other matters.
