Conservative manifesto reveals shocking childcare provision: just £1 per child

Tom Morrison has slammed the Conservatives for their dismal handout to young families

Whilst the Conservatives have pledged £250 million for expanding childcare provision, official government figures show this equates to just £1 per pupil per week.

This is equivalent to just 16 minutes additional childcare a week.

Parents struggle to find childcare to look after their kids until they get home from work, both in term-time and in the school holidays. 

The Liberal Democrats have a plan to build a brighter future for every child. They will give parents 35 hours a week of high-quality free childcare from the day they go back to work to the day their child starts school, including in the school holidays."

The Liberal Democrat candidate for Cheadle, Tom Morrison, is a governor at a local primary school. 

Tom said:

"As a local school governor, I have seen first-hand how the Conservatives' cuts have impacted our schools.

"The latest Conservative announcement is an insult to families. People will rightly see through this.”
