Italian cabinet to review welfare screening plans
Plan to crackdown on handout cheats30 January, 19:52
So far, reforms designed to toughen up the ISEE - a measure that includes income, assets, and family size in considering social benefits - have come under scrutiny and criticism by the regions and courts.
A review is now planned to reconsider ways of tightening the measure to better control public spending and prevent people from taking advantage of the system.
The government may introduce measures that will take account of property values, luxury cars, powerful motorcycles and boats, as well as the value of a family's savings and investments.
