Social Security and Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (Enhanced Allowances) Bill 2008
I wanted to ask another question of the minister, but I am sure Senator McLucas, the parliamentary secretary who is now at the table, will be able to assist. An article in the Australian on 1 March, when the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras was being held, said that the government was planning to announce much of the reform package in the May budget. I want to check whether that was correct because it is not a quote from the minister; it is part of the article. I want to check whether that was correctly reported in terms of giving people an idea of the sort of time frame.
