    Default Fines Bill, common sense at last.

    This bill should have been made law years ago. Except in the most extreme of cases, nobody should be put in jail over nonpayment of fines or debts that are recoverable.

    I see they have put in the obligatory could end up been taken out of your wages.Why do we have to fanny about and do everything half arsed. Just do it all ready and while their at it, anyone on welfare who's a serial anti social offender should have fines deducted from their dole like they do in Finland . Will that ever happen , will it fup.

    I'd like to be able to see the number of people in prison for nonpayment of fines/debts at any one time. If no longer necessary, would we need the current prison building programme ?

    Why put the onus on the employer to collect fines?

    It's a myth that the prisons are full of fine defaulters. Our prison system is overcrowded anyway, most if not all defaulters are processed through prison and are let out again a few hours after.

    This seems to be a sensible proposal
