Angela Rayner responds to Childcare Survey 2019

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education, responding to the Childcare Survey 2019, said:

“The cost of childcare continues to rise faster than wages under the Tories, and it is clear they are failing to provide the high-quality, affordable childcare that families across the country need.

“Barely half of local authorities say that they have enough childcare available for parents working full time, and many children are not eligible for any free childcare.

“The next Labour government will transform childcare provision, offering 30 hours of high quality early education a week to every 2-4 year old in England as part of a National Education Service for the many, not the few.”
