That this House notes that the Government is closing Childcare Vouchers to new entrants from 4 October 2018 without having conducted a proper analysis of the winners and losers from removing the scheme and replacing it with Tax-Free Childcare, despite a recommendation to so do by the Treasury Select Committee; further notes that families must be able to make an informed choice about the childcare that best suits their family needs, based on a comprehensive and flexible package of support; recognises the benefits of Tax-Free Childcare for certain family types, but is concerned that many low-income families will be worse off than if they were to carry on using Childcare Vouchers; calls on the Government to keep Childcare Vouchers open alongside Tax-Free Childcare so that parents can choose the scheme that offers the most support to their family; and urges the Government to ensure that hon. Members are given the opportunity to debate and vote on these proposed changes on the floor of the House before they are fully implemented.
