The Government's delay in deciding how to fund long-term care has been attacked by the Help the Aged charity.
Last week it was announced further work was needed before changes could be made following a series of set-backs on the project by the Royal Commission.
The financial services industry welcomed the promise of discussion on how to make insurance products that fund long-term care more desirable.
The industry is pressing the Government to alter annuity rules so individuals can draw on their pension fund to pay for long-term care. So far only 30,000 such products have been sold.
