Senator IAN MACDONALD (8.43 p.m.) —I repeat what it says:

From April this year retirees who receive as little one dollar per week in pension will also be eligible for the full range of Commonwealth and State provided fringe benefits for services such as hearing aids, electricity, rates and transport.
