Petition Action

BENEFITS to be paid in vouchers for food, utilities, clothes

Additional Information

this petition is to ask the Government to overhaul the benefits system so that those in need of state-funded support receive it in the form of:

food vouchers (not eligible to be spent on cigarettes or alcohol),
vouchers for paying utility bills,
vouchers for children's clothes, etc

A voucher system will ensure that any person or family in need will be guaranteed to receive food, warmth and clothing (at the very least). The benefits system should not provide for luxuries such as a flat-screen television. This approach would discourage the 'entitlement' generation and hopefully provide for those most at need while reinforcing the somewhat outdated view that luxuries need to be paid for by earning money.
