Mr DALY (GRAYNDLER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister for Social Services and Minister in Charge of Aboriginal Affairs. Does he recall his many orations when a militant backbencher in which he advocated a new deal for aged, invalid and widow pensioners and the abolition of the means test? If so, does his reply to a question in this House recently that abolition of the means test is a matter of policy, together with the vague details on social services contained in His Excellency's Speech, indicate that the Minister has now been emancipated, that he has forgotten his pious ideals and that his ministerial efforts on social services will be limited to the administration of the present Government's policy with all its injustices, hardships and inequalities for pensioners and other beneficiaries?
