Opposition senator lauds government’s pension assistance

Opposition Senator Caswell Franklyn has lauded government’s efforts to honour pension plan assistance for 68 former employees of British American Insurance Company.

But he used the occasion of the amendment to express concern about what he has described as a misguided view held by some people regarding invalidity benefits and pensions for former public servants.

He says invalidity benefits are not the same as the National Insurance Pension.

Senator Franklyn says just as it did for the former British American workers, government must therefore make a similar effort for former public servants.
