Letter from Paula Bennett concerning beneficaries and home education

Update 5/10/12: Make a submission: Reject compulsory Early Education for 3 year olds


Here is the letter from Paula Bennett — all bad news for home educators on a benefit.



Reading this response I realise that this is a process we are going through at the moment – The Social Security (Benefit Categories and Work Focus) Amendment Bill.

So we can now make submissions to this Bill leading up to the 1st reading of the Bill – more on this when I find out exactly what this involves and the timeline of events for this bill.

OK this bill was first introduced 17 September 2012 http://www.legislation.govt.nz/bill/government/2012/0067/latest/DLM4542304.html
