Childcare scheme gets six-month reprieve
Responding to the decision to delay the scrapping of childcare vouchers for six months Sinn Féin spokesperson for children and young people Catherine Kelly MLA said:
“Childcare vouchers help many working parents with the often exorbitant costs of childcare so I welcome the six month extension.
“However, it is only a temporary reprieve.
"The extension period should be used to develop a longer term solution to the need for accessible and affordable childcare."
