Senator TOWNLEY (TASMANIA) - Will the Attorney-

General, who represents the Minister for Social Services in this chamber, ask the Minister for Social Services to examine the possibility of altering the legislation applying to unemployment benefit so that when a person is out of work he can claim the benefit, irrespective of the income of others in his family?

Senator GREENWOOD - I undertake to convey the honourable senator's question to the Minister for Social Services, and I trust that a reply will be forthcoming as quickly as possible.
