& # 39; Who's in her ear? & # 39 ;: Pauline Hanson is personally in her spit with Jacqui Lambie about her refusal to support drug testing for welfare recipients
- Senator Pauline Hanson has started a personal attack on Jacqui Lambie
- Hanson dragged Senator Lambie's son into battle because he refused to support a bill
- Lambie said that her son was once addicted to drugs, but that he has left his past
Pauline Hanson has launched a personal attack on Jacqui Lambie, because the debate about the well-being of drug users takes a nasty turn.
The leader of the One Nation demanded an & # 39; to explain & # 39; from senator Lambie after she had dragged her family into the fight.
& # 39; Her child has used drugs and you would not fall back on something that could help people like her son, & # 39; said Senator Hanson Tuesday in Canberra.
& # 39; That is why I support this. Why is she knocking this back? Who's in her ear? & # 39;

Senator Lambie refuses to support drug testing until more rehabilitation beds are available.
The Tasmanian crossbencher responded quickly after her son – who was suffering from ice addiction – ran into the debate.
& # 39; My son is an example of what happens when you have access to the support and rehabilitation services you need, & # 39; she tweeted.
& # 39; Five hundred thousand Aussies do not have access to those services. My son has left the past. & # 39;
The Morrison government wants to screen 5000 Newstart and Youth Allowance recipients for illegal drugs.
About 500 people are not expected to pass a test.
& # 39; Not a cent of their social benefits will be reduced & said Social Security Minister Anne Ruston.
& # 39; What we want to do is put them on a card, an income management card, for which 80 percent of their income must be placed in quarantine and not cash accessible. & # 39;
Only 150 people are expected to test positive a second time.

These 150 well-being recipients can each qualify for up to $ 65,000 in treatments and support.
& # 39; If they fail a second time, we try to support them in a rehabilitation program to address their drug addiction problem, & # 39; said Senator Ruston.
The government has promised to spend $ 10 million on stimulating rehabilitation services at the three trial locations.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison is surprised at the degree of opposition to his plan.
& # 39; You are trying things because these are difficult problems and you have to make sure that you are trying to solve these problems & he said to reporters in Parliament.
& # 39; Now if you are not willing to do that, well, you are clearly not committed to trying to address this issue. & # 39;
Shadow treasurer Jim Chalmers said that resurrecting the twice-rejected idea was a cynical attempt to resolve a political conflict.
& # 39; The prime minister now wants you to hum in a humiliating way as part of his fight with the Labor Party, & # 39; he said.
Opposition leader Anthony Albanese also said that the plan to test people for well-being was a political tactic, not a legitimate policy.
& # 39; The prime minister must stop looking for derivations of the main game, & # 39; said Mr Albanese.
& # 39; The most important game in this country is the economy and the fact that people are really struggling and the prime minister is no longer in contact. & # 39;
The coalition will reintroduce legislation supporting the drug tests to the Lower House later this week.
