1.3m to benefit from free childcare plan : Morning Star

Labour’s provisions ensure ‘all get good start to life’


MORE than a million families will benefit from better childcare provision under Labour manifesto plans which offer free care to all two to four-year-olds.

The Labour Party has pledged to extend 30 hours of free care a week for children before they start school, regardless of their family circumstances — a move which Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says will benefit 1.3 million kids.

Current rules see just 40 per cent of two-year olds qualifying for free childcare, while many three and four-year-olds with working parents miss out.

But a Labour government “will be committed to ensuring every child is given a good start in life,” said Mr Corbyn.

“The Labour Party believes every child, no matter what their background, deserves a good start in life, and that childcare costs shouldn’t be a barrier for parents who want to go back to work.

“High-quality childcare can transform a child’s life chances and make it much easier for parents to work.”

The move is in direct contrast to the Tory attack on Labour’s successful Sure Start project, which saw 1.05 million families benefit from care provision, help and advice in mainly disadvantaged areas.

Money to fund the scheme was “ring-fenced” by Labour.

  1. Where’s the money coming from I keep hearing Tory and UKIP voters on LBC radio.

    Was listening to Ian Collins last night, not one person phoned in with the obvious answer.

    But one Tory/UKIP punter (he didn’t say which) did phone in and say, this Corbyn guy is planning to tax big business, what’s the point in that he said…they’ll just leave and set up business abroad.

    Not one single person came back with the right answer to that, which is…SO THESE CONGLOMERATES, THESE BIG BUSINESS’S, THESE UPPER CLASS FLYMEN DON’T CARE ABOUT REVITALISING AND HELPING OUR COUNTRY OUT OF THIS MESS THEN ?, SO IT’S ALL ABOUT THEM AND HOW MUCH MONEY THEY CAN SCREW OUT OF THE COUNTRY BY PAYING AS LITTLE TAX AS POSSIBLE.

    IN OTHER WORDS THE FIRST SIGN OF DIFFICULTY, THE FIRST SIGN OF GUNFIRE THEY JUST PACK UP AND RUN ?.

    People ?…they just get right on my ficken nerves listening to them whine on and ficken on, when there’s an obvious – probably only – solution right under there noses.

    Vodaphone, Starbucks, McDonald’s and all the rest of these tax dodging bastards are never going to leave this Country, the profits – even after paying the due tax – are way to handsome…SO, NO WAY JOSE, AS THEY SAY.
