      Welfare Ministry's Budget Will Not be Cut

      Welfare Minister Meir Cohen has reached an agreement with Finance Minister Yair Lapid that the Welfare Ministry’s budget will not be cut as part of the cuts that will be introduced by the Treasury. The cuts in the allowances for families with many children are expected be implemented, however.

      In a statement Sunday night, Cohen said, “The cancellation of the cuts in the Welfare Ministry is a good starting point for the processes that I am going to be promoting in the coming year."
