About this issueMinistry of Health, Labor and WelfareIt is,Welfare ActIn February 2016, Oita Prefecture requested Beppu City to rectify the situation, informing Oita Prefecture that spending on pachinko machines was not explicitly prohibited and that suspension of payment was inappropriate.In response to this, Beppu City decided to cancel the suspension measures from 2, but decided to continue the patrol survey and provide guidance if it finds a beneficiary to gamble.[10][11]..On the other hand, the lawyer who serves as the secretary general of the "Kyushu-Okinawa Network for Livelihood Protection Support" mistakenly said that the livelihood protection recipients are in front of the public and that it is unavoidable for the government to interfere with any non-illegal acts. He said that it was inappropriate because he was given an image and was atrophied.[16].
