Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Cloverdale -

THE Bel­mont Sports and Recre­ation Cen­tre was the venue for a se­nior’s morn­ing tea last Mon­day to dis­cuss fed­eral gov­ern­ment bud­get cuts.

Deputy Leader of the Op­po­si­tion Tanya Plibersek and Se­na­tor Sue Lines at­tended the event.

East Met­ro­pol­i­tan MLC Sa­man­tha Rowe said res­i­dent con­cerns in­cluded limited pub­lic trans­port op­tions in the area and costs of liv­ing pres­sures.

Other ques­tions in­volved the state of the Aus­tralian econ­omy, vol­un­teer­ing roles for se­niors, and the rais­ing of the re­tire­ment age.

About 120 se­niors were treated to a morn­ing tea catered by the Bel­mont Park Ten­nis Club.
