Stephen Twigg MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to today’s announcement on childcare, said:
“David Cameron has created a cost of living crisis for hard working families. Whilst parents are feeling the squeeze of childcare, the Prime Minister has presided over reduced support, rising costs and fewer places.
“This out of touch government is failing to deliver the additional capacity needed to meet the commitments it has made for new places for two year olds.
“All this from a Prime Minister who promised the most family friendly government in Europe.”
