Audit cuts to rural SA will have human cost
Huge cuts to rural and regional services will have drastic mental health consequences if adopted by the Abbott Government, Australian Greens Senator for South Australia Penny Wright has warned.
Senator Wright urged the Abbott Government to immediately reject proposals to abolish the Rural Financial Counselling Service and Farm Finance Concessional Loans Scheme.
"The Abbott Government must not sell out rural and regional South Australia," Senator Wright said.
"These programs have supported thousands of country families through tough times."
