Senator TOWNLEY (TASMANIA) - I wish to ask a question of the Minister representing the Minister for Social Services. Is the Minister aware that the means test as applied to persons in receipt of the age pension requires such pensioners to include any income which is received as superannuation? Can the Minister say whether the Government has further considered allowing superannuation receipts to be exempted from the means test?

Senator GREENWOOD - I am unable to give as full an answer to the honourable senator's question as obviously he would like. I will undertake to convey the question to the Minister whom I represent in this chamber and ask him to provide an answer as soon as possible.
