One Opposition Senator is today telling the government to re-examine the social assistance programmes. This advice comes in light of falling energy prices. Senator Shamfa Cudjoe says many of the people benefitting from these programmes are not in need of the help. Also in the senate today, Independent Senator Hugh Ian Roach told the government the time has come for it to make bold choices to help save the local economy. More from Chester Sambrano.
