Controversial contraceptive scheme for beneficiaries to end

From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 8 August 2018

A controversial scheme to fund free long term contraceptives for beneficaries and their daughters ends on Monday. The previous government set aside almost a million dollars for the scheme over six years, but Work and Income spent just 200-thousand of that. The grant which covered IUDs, injections and implants, was labelled an insult and intrusive. Catherine Hutton reports.
