Senator XENOPHON (5:33 PM) —Could the minister take on notice this question: in terms of the difference between retiring at 65 or at 67, have any projections been made about the extent to which this change might mean that, instead of people being on the pension—because they will not be able to be on it—they might be seeking alternative benefits, such as disability payments? I obviously do not expect an answer now, but perhaps this is something the minister could correspond with me about in due course.
