From the Sydney Mornning Herald: Australian funeral directors have demanded an exemption from the government's proposed ban on $10,000 cash payments, claiming the policy could hit grieving people "at the lowest point in their lives". The Australian Funeral Directors Association sent answers to questions from the Senate economics committee reviewing the laws this week, claiming some funeral directors receive up to 20 per cent of their payments for funerals in cash, while about 6 per cent of funerals costing over $10,000 are paid this way.
