He was replying to a parliamentary question submitted by Nationalist MP Jason Azzopardi.

I hate tu use this term but let us call a spade a spade. Unknown father my foot. Are these women sleeping around with any Tom, Dick and Harry? If the government wants to get to the truth there is a thing called DNA that can tell who the real father is. The Unknown Father Syndrome has become a business at the expense to the Tax Payer.  The sad part is that the government sanctions this by rewarding these women who do not know who they slept with!

If the women concerned do not know who the father is, It could be argued that they should be treated as prostitutes. That would alter the case substantially, I expect.

Declaring a baby with unknown father is just a good strategy to obtain more social benefits ! It should be versed and those who declare paternity should be sustained instead! At least these are being responsible for their actions !
