Fairer Deal For Parents on Benefits - Christine Rankin
Christine Rankin's Party Supports Fairer Deal For Parents on Benefits
July 23 2014
Conservative Party Leader Colin Craig is backing a campaign seeking to reform the way Work And Income treats shared care parents.
Mr Craig confirmed his party's stance in an email to Fifty Fifty campaigner Duncan Eddy last night, stating;
"I confirm we support 50/50 parenting being an equal share of responsibilities and costs with same support to each. We call this a level playing field."
Mr Eddy welcomed The Conservative Party's support for fairer treatment for beneficiaries who share their kids' care.
"Not only are they potential coalition partners for National, but their Party Manager is ex WINZ boss Christine Rankin."
