Childcare inquiry – submit written evidence by 9th February 2018

The Treasury Committee has launched a new inquiry into childcare policy and its influence on the economy. The Committee will examine the role high quality, accessible, flexible and affordable childcare can play in supporting labour productivity.

It will consider the overall package of Government initiatives that aim to make childcare affordable, how the individual initiatives interact with each other and their effectiveness, and whether they have delivered an adequate provision of affordable childcare that facilitates parental employment.

It will also scrutinise the processes around how childcare schemes are delivered and the quality of childcare interfaces—such as the Childcare Service website and their previous failures.

If you wish to submit evidence to this inquiry, the deadline to do so is Friday 9 February 2018.
