Lambie’s welfare clincher

Evidence from a trial of a cashless debit card stopping welfare recipients buying alcohol or gambling has convinced Jacqui Lambie it could bring positive results in Tasmania and nationally.

Tasmanian Senator Lambie has been supportive of a debit card for welfare recipients for some time.

She has now prepared a report explaining her support for a well executed roll-out ofthe card, based on what she learned during visits to the trial site; Ceduna, in South Australia.

However, she has tied her support to fiveconditions.

Theyare:

That the Turnbull Government forgive Tasmania’s public housing debt (about $190 million in late 2015), repayment of which takes about half of Tasmania’s public housing allocation from Canberra which could otherwise be spent on newhousing;Tasmania becoming payroll tax free, potentially leading to an influx of bigger businesses and encouraging growth of medium-sized and large Tasmanian businesses;laws giving parents the right to force drug addicted children into detox programs; andmajor TAFE system reform; and$200,000 for a feasibility study into a fast catamaran service across Bass Strait.Senator Lambie, a former welfare recipient, said most MPshad “ no understanding of what it’s like to do it tough, to be forced, through no faultof their own, to scrimp, save and struggle, just to get through to the next payday”.

“The potential for harmful unintended consequences is greatif the roll-out of this card is not managed well,” she said.

“However, after visiting the trial site… twice now and listening to many different views from the community, I believe that under the right conditions, the cashless Healthy Welfare Card would work anywhere in Australia, including Tasmania.”

She said visits to Ceduna’s hospital had dropped by 20 per cent since the card was introduced, and police believed sexual assaults and violent crimes generally had decreased.
