Helen questions the Chancellor on the costs of childcare

For the first time in decades, the number of women leaving the workforce is increasing. The cost of childcare is forcing women to cut their hours or give up work altogether to care for their children. The government’s failure to invest in accessible, affordable childcare is holding back women, and it is holding back our economy.
So it is astonishing that the Chancellor made no mention of childcare in his Autumn Statement today. Childcare is vital social and economic infrastructure. A good childcare system benefits children, families and the economy. You can watch my question to the Chancellor here >>
