Anglicare Australia Submission on the Cashless Debit Card Expansion

Jul 20, 2018, 10:57 AM by Anglicare Australia

In this submission, Anglicare Australia recommends that the Senate reject the Cashless Debit Card Trial Expansion Bill in its entirety. Our input is based on the compulsory nature of this trial, the absence of evidence, the failure to conduct comprehensive consultation, and the lack of community support for the trial. Given these factors and the cost of further trialling, it is time for the Senate to end this expensive failed experiment and halt the expansion of the Cashless Debit Card in Australia.
