Welfare reforms draw protest

Welfare reform protesters rallied against the Social Security Amendment Bill outside the offices of National MP Michael Woodhouse, in Dunedin, yesterday.

Mr Woodhouse did not talk to protesters but Welfare Justice Dunedin spokeswoman Olive McRae said his staff allowed her into the building so she could breast-feed her 11-month-old son.
