The Hon Jenny Macklin MP: Income management for APY Lands (7 Sep 12)

Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (10 Sep 12)
"* The Gillard Labor Government is set to introduce income management in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in October following claims that there was strong support for the system at community consultations held in May.
* Sydney based researcher says all of the areas across Australia targeted for income management are places that have been neglected by government and instead of looking at the needs of the community and why there are social problems Government wasn’t to blame the people themselves for their disadvantage."
