Additional Social Welfare Assistance

75.       I have earlier made a series of specific proposals to help the disadvantaged, involving government expenditure amounting to approximately $900 million.  To share the fruits of economic prosperity with recipients of CSSA and Social Security Allowance (SSA), I also propose to provide one additional month of standard rate CSSA payments for CSSA recipients and one additional month of allowance for SSA recipients.  This proposal will benefit over a million people and cost the Government about $1.5 billion in 2007?8.
