PATA submits evidence to childcare inquiry
The House of Commons Treasury Committee recently launched a new inquiry into childcare policy and its influence on the economy. The inquiry will specifically examine the role high quality, accessible, flexible and affordable childcare can play in supporting labour productivity, and will also look at how childcare schemes are delivered.
Our submission used responses from our 30 funded hours survey and therefore provided evidence of the real impact on providers.
