Only in a way. For example for myself, we get the family tax benefit and I'm the bread winner as DH is a SAHD.
I wouldn't be offended if they said to me "We'll take your FTB and pay it to your rental company on your behalf, you don't have the choice". Or to a bill payer or something. But for families who don't have separate income coming in to use for the little extras that they may like to have every now and then, well I can see how that would be offensive and or restrictive.

My experiences at my sons school are that children of parents on benefits get free lunch provision but the meals are the same for all children whether they're free or paid for by the parents.
They also operate a breakfast club open to all children and the school has a grant from the Welsh Govt which means it's free to all regardless of benefit status.

Unfortunately, as long as we're sailing under the Union Jack, we will always have the different classes and there will never be a system of equality in Australia. (And people wonder why the UK doesn't want to be part of the EU. Most of the European monarchies have ditched the public/private systems. Something the UK isn't willing to give up. Ever.)
Anyway, back to topic now
