Mr J R FRASER - My question, which is directed to the Minister for Social Services, does not relate to dancing but to the 10s. rent allowance that is shortly to be paid to pensioners in certain circumstances. Can the Minister say what conditions will apply in the case of pensioners who are tenants occupying government homes in Canberra and who are paying rent to the Commonwealth, but who are receiving from the Commonwealth very generous rental rebates? Will he confer with the Minister for the Interior to ascertain whether the 10s. rent allowance will now be counted in the income which affects the amount of rental rebate or whether the pensioners will be entitled to the whole 10s.?
