Mr STEWART (LANG, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Can the Minister for Social Services say whether it is a fact that instructions have been issued to officers of the Department of Social Services and the Repatriation Department that the means test provision relating to the 10s. supplementary payment to age, service, invalid and widow pensioners is not to be made public? What information will be contained in the letters forwarded to applicants whose claims have been rejected? Will pensioners be given detailed reasons for the rejection of their applications for supplementary assistance?
