Questions without Notice
My question is to the Treasurer. The Productivity Commission report released today recommends that the family home be included in the pension assets test. Will the Treasurer give pensioners certainty in their retirement by ruling out including the family home in the pension assets test?
I thank the member for the question. I note that the Productivity Commission report to which she refers was a report to government not from government. It was also a report that was initiated by the Productivity Commission not by the government. The government's policy on this issue is very well known, and there is no change in the government's policy.
