Payment of Benefits

Benefits should be given on smart cards that can only be used for essential food, rent etc - not cash in hand.  We used to live near Anagh Coar stores and when we were in for groceries you would see people drawing their benefit at the Post Office counter and then spending it all straight away on alcohol and cigarettes.
