NewsMail to conduct official poll on the Cashless Debit Card

HINKLER MP Keith Pitt says 75 per cent of the electorate's people support the proposed trial of a Cashless Debit Card for some welfare recipients.

It's a figure that's been contested in some quarters.

"Clearly the proposed scheme has everybody talking since it was announced as part of last week's Budget," NewsMail editor Adam Wratten said.

Mr Pitt is keen to see legislation introduced to parliament before the mid-winter break in August. Mr Wratten said given the huge importance to our community the NewsMail and sister paper the Fraser Coast Chronicle had engaged ReachTel to conduct a poll on this and other key issues affecting the region.

ReachTel is a market research leader.
