Senator CROWLEY (Minister for Family Services and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women) (8.50 p.m.) —The Government is concerned that pensioners be assisted in this matter and it will be interested to try to assist local governments.

If local governments are in difficulty, they should bring that to the attention of their States prior to the Council of Australian Governments meeting in early June.
