Shadow minister supports Labour vow on Warrington visit

First published in News

SHADOW Labour minister for childcare Lucy Powell dropped into Warrington on Saturday to back a new policy.

The MP joined Labour candidate for Warrington South Nick Bent and other supporters for a street stall at Market Gate.

The opposition is promising ‘wrap-around childcare’ from 8am to 6pm for all primary schoolchildren and an extra 10 hours a week (making a total of 25 hours) of free nursery hours for all three and four year olds for working families.

In Warrington, a total of 1,700 young children aged three and four would be entitled to the 25 hours of free nursery care.

Lucy Powell MP said: “Families in Warrington face a cost of living crisis of David Cameron’s making, yet millionaires are getting tax breaks from the Tories.”

Nick Bent commented: “Labour’s pledge to extend free nursery care to 25 hours will be worth more than £1,500 per year for parents of three and four year olds and this shows we are serious about helping families to boost their earnings and get on in life.”

FREE nursery care? How does that work? Are we robbing Peter to pay Paul?

Helen Jones was whinging when the tory minister ventured onto her territory and didn't inform her and/or get her blessing - I trust Labour would give David Mowat the consideration of telling him about their day trips to Warrington.

David Mowat probably isn't bothered. He gets on with his job and doesn't steal column inches with moaning nonsense like HJ..
