Government begins banning travel for people with outstanding debt
The government has begun banning people who owe money to federal agencies from travelling overseas in a move to recoup $800 million. Up to 150 thousand people will be grounded until they either settle their debt or organise repayment plans, The Saturday Telegraph has reported. The policy has already prevented 20 people from fleeing their debt or indulging in a holiday, including one person who owes the Australian Taxation Office $10,000.
