Ms PATTEN (Northern Metropolitan) (12:34:54) — My constituency question this week is for the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing, and I would like to thank Dylan Cutifani, who has been working in my office, for the question. We spoke to a constituent who is 82 years old, is trying to sell her house and has been told that she requires three forms of ID: her birth certificate, a Medicare card and a licence or passport for photo ID. She has never had a passport and gave up her drivers licence 10 years ago. Since then she has found herself without a valid form of photographic ID. My constituent asks: will the minister consider adding a person’s photo to their senior citizens card, which could then act as a primary source of photo ID?
