First one to Vicky Read from Jenny Chapman MP
Thank you for contacting me about the Government’s proposals on childcare. I am particularly concerned about the impact this will have on child safety and the quality of childcare . The policy Liz Truss MP is has outlined will have grave implications for the future of childminding in this country. I agree with the points you make in your email, that these measures will have a profound effect on childminders such as yourself and families looking for high quality childcare.
I will do all I can to raise this issue in Parliament. I’d be more than happy to meet with you and other childminders in Darlington to discuss these measures. Perhaps you could discuss this with your colleagues and come back to me. Please contact Kath in my office on (01325) 382345 if you would like to arrange a meeting.
