LETTER: Two concession cards should be allowed if married

MY WIFE and I are both in our late seventies, and we both run a car.

Our cars are old and battered, and worth almost nothing, but they serve us well, and as we live in a rural area, they are invaluable to us.

However, as we are a married couple, only one of us can claim the senior's concession on car registration.

If we were not married, but just living together in a de facto relationship, we could both claim the concession.

This seems to us to be a clear case of discrimination against married couples?

We have raised this matter with our State MP, Mark Ryan, but to date have had no reply.
