Boost free childcare to build a brighter future - Lib Dems

November 11, 2019 4:30 PM

Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson said:

"For so many people, the cost of childcare simply makes returning to work impossible. This hurts our economy and deprives our workforce of a vital pool of talent.

"The choice for parents now is simply not good enough. That is why Liberal Democrats are proposing a transformational change to our economy, by providing working parents with free childcare from when their child is 9 months old.

"This will close the gap between the end of paid parental leave and the start of free childcare provision. It will finally give parents more choice about when they return to work and unlock their untapped potential for our economy.

"This is part of our bold plan to build a brighter future and fundamentally reshape our economy."
