Tulip Siddiq – 2021 Comments on Early Years

The comments made by Tulip Siddiq, the Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, on 22 April 2021.

The early years are critical for a child’s development and childcare is a fundamental building block of our economy but, over the last decade, early years services have been neglected.

This Conservative Government has failed to listen to families who have been unable to get the childcare, early education and wellbeing support they need.

As we emerge from the pandemic, we need to have a big conversation with the public about how we can rebuild this essential infrastructure.
