Family way

LETTER

Re: The Families Package.

I can only hope that the Government also takes into consideration the growing number of one-person families in New Zealand.

Perhaps it would be helpful if they took the time to determine and publicise what constitutes a family. Could a pensioner living alone not be considered a family?

I wouldn’t think so, but I’d like to know if the Government will support this vulnerable group of folk to the same level as “the modern family”.
