Family tax benefit cuts return

The federal government has reintroduced to parliament cuts to family payments including abolishing annual bonuses.

Families will no longer receive family tax benefit supplement Part A of about $726.35 and Part B of $354.05 under the measures which Labor previously rejected.

Social Services Minister Christian Porter on Wednesday said the supplements were not well-targeted, warning if cuts were not made now they would be more severe in the future.
