True, but I've run into people i knew who were walking round a Melbourne suburban indoor shopping mall drinking from UDL can's while pushing a trolley with a single large packet of party pies.The problem becomes, how can they know that the recipient is purchasing alcohol/smokes with the cash stipend rather than using it where it should go?
It's stupid, because without receipts they can't know.
Seems the kids were hungry and they'd run out of food.
A cashless component of the welfare would just make sure they didn't spend it ALL on booze and pokies.
