Tory failure to deliver affordable childcare has left many families out of pocket and out of work

Commenting on the Coram Holiday Childcare Survey, showing that working parents face an £800 bill for summer holiday childcare, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary said “This report shows that holiday childcare costs continue to rise year after year under this Tory government. It is clear that they have failed to deliver affordable care for families across the country.

“This failure to provide free or affordable childcare to those who need it has left many parents not just out of pocket but often out of work, as employment just won’t pay after the cost of care.

“The next Labour Government will invest in expanded and improved high-quality, affordable childcare, as part of our National Education Service.”
