Kate Green – 2020 Comments on Childcare Difficulties

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Education Secretary, on 29 July 2020.

The Conservatives have created a perfect storm for working parents across the country, with a crisis in the childcare sector locking children out of early education and making it impossible for many parents to return to work.

Ordering parents back to work without allowing them to access the childcare they need is a stark reminder that Boris Johnson is completely out of touch with the needs of working families.

The Government must urgently provide targeted support to the childcare sector, and ensure that parents can access the childcare that they need.
