Apology for error (letter)


by John Morrissey

News Weekly, June 9, 2007
Sir,

It has been pointed out to me that my article, "Howard's cash benefits for families" (News Weekly, May 12, 2007), contained an error [the Web version has been corrected - ed].

In researching the family assistance literature, I misunderstood Family Tax Benefit B as being paid per child rather than per family, as is the case.

Although the brochure is ambiguous, the department website makes it quite plain.

Amended figures for tax-free extra income are thus $12,103, $7,147 and $8,199 respectively for the three family scenarios.

I apologise for having misled News Weekly's readers.

John Morrissey,
Hawthorn, Vic.
