Report published 25 March 2018. Government Response published 20 June 2018.
The Treasury Committee has launched a new inquiry into childcare policy and its influence on the economy.
The Committee will examine the role high quality, accessible, flexible and affordable childcare can play in supporting labour productivity.
It will scrutinise the processes around how childcare schemes are delivered and the quality of childcare interfaces—such as the Childcare Service website and their previous failures.
It will also consider the overall package of Government initiatives that aim to make childcare affordable, how the individual initiatives interact with each other and their effectiveness, and whether they have delivered an adequate provision of affordable childcare that facilitates parental employment.
