SCOA’s Federal President, Dr Annette Barbetti, today deplored the lack of information in a response from the Department of Social Services to a Freedom of Information request (jointly with ACPSRO) for further details about how many pensioners would be affected by the socalled “ten percent issue”.

In response, SCOA has put out the attached press release.  Subsequently, Dr Annette Barbetti was interviewed by the Canberra Times which resulted in two front page articles in the paper.
