Proposed cuts to education welfare payments will mean more than 100,000 of Victoria's poorest children will receive less financial support than students 10 years ago.  Melbourne Weekly, July 3, 2012.  Parents Victoria's Executive Officer, Gail McHardy quoted.

Gail also followed up with a posting to the Melbourne Weekly site as follows:
