Extending Free Nursery Places — Breakfast and After-School Clubs to Provide 8am-6pm Childcare — Tax Breaks for Firms Starting to Pay a Living Wage — 19 Nov 2013 at 18:49

Patrick McLoughlin MP, Derbyshire Dales voted against extending free nursery places for 3 and 4 year olds from 15 to 25 hours per week; against introducing a guarantee of 8am-6pm childcare via breakfast and after-school clubs; and against a tax rebate for firms which sign up to pay the living wage.

The majority of MPs voted against extending free nursery places for 3 and 4 year olds from 15 to 25 hours per week; against introducing a guarantee of 8am-6pm childcare via breakfast and after-school clubs; and against a tax rebate for firms which sign up to pay the living wage.

The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • believes that the Government is failing to deliver a recovery for women and is making women pay three times more than men to bring down the deficit, according to research by the House of Commons Library;
  • notes that under this Government, women’s unemployment has reached its highest levels for a generation;
  • further notes that wages are stagnating in jobs where women are predominant; and
  • calls on the Government to support more women into decent work by extending free nursery places for 3 and 4 year olds from 15 to 25 hours a week for parents at work, provide a legal guarantee for 8am-6pm breakfast and afterschool club childcare, and bring in Make Work Pay contracts to provide a 12 months tax rebate for firms which sign up to pay the living wage.
