(1) Sections 1 to 3 shall not come into force until the Secretary of State has-

(a) established an independent review of the free childcare entitlement funding system, including a large-scale analysis of the cost of delivering funded places; and

(b) put in place a comprehensive and sustainable funding solution, which takes into account the complete findings of the review under paragraph (a), and which addresses the funding of existing childcare and the additional requirements on childcare providers arising from this Act.

(2) The review to be established under subsection (1)(a) shall consult local authorities, childcare providers, employers, parents and others with an interest.

(3) Where the Secretary of State’s funding solution under subsection (1)(b) does not follow the recommendations of the review under subsection (1)(a), the Secretary of State must publish a report outlining the reasoning.
