Social Security and Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (Enhanced Allowances) Bill 2008
I thank Senator Nettle for the question. I understand that the reforms that are proposed do have budgetary implications so they are being considered in the context of developing the budget. The words you quoted from the Australian I am not sure are exactly indicative. I hope that answers your question: it is being considered in the context of the budget because there are budgetary implications for the reforms that are required.
