Childcare is one of the most expensive costs for working parents with families. For some families paying for childcare can be as much as having a second mortgage, whilst childcare costs can also be a major barrier to getting into work.

I would like to see free childcare for three and four year olds extended from 15 to 25 hours per week for working parents of three and four year-olds, funded by increasing the banking levy.
