POORLY paid people who support the elderly like their parents should be given a tax rebate.
In their constitutional submissions, the women of Bua province suggested that people over the age of 60 years who live with their poorly paid children be supported by the government in the form of a tax rebate.
"Any other person of a low wage level wishing to support an aged person must be given a tax rebate," said Lanieta Ranavono.
The women did not specify the bracket of low level wages in their submission.
The group also recommended that casinos and same sex marriages be banned.
Also part of the submissions made by the women was accessible education to all children.
"The provision for education in the 1997 Constitution in Chapter 4, Part 39-(1) should be reinstated in the new constitution's Bill of Rights but with the added provision that the constitution stipulates that there be a legislation for financial provision through an Education Tax to help meet the costs of free basic education for people of all ages and people with special educational needs at all socioe-conomic levels," said Ms Ranavono.
"The reason for this submission is that there has been a critical increase in the number of school dropouts from primary and secondary schools in Bua.
"Even six-year-olds are not attending school and these have all been caused by the financial challenges facing their parents."
Ms Ranavono said children of all ages in rural areas should have the right to basic education as well as appropriate education inclusive of technical education.
