Neil Parish welcomes new measures to help parents with cost of childcare

Neil Parish welcomes the Governments Childcare Payments Bill, which will give parents and guardians financial support with the cost of nursery, a childminder or other types of childcare

Neil Parish (Tiverton and Honiton) (Con): I very much welcome the Government’s approach to tax-free child care, especially for the self-employed. In the past they have been ruled out of help, so the sooner we can put that right, the better.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Nicky Morgan): My hon. Friend is entirely right. I will move on to talk about the importance of the scheme for the self-employed and for those setting up or growing their own businesses. I am very pleased that he has raised that at this stage in the debate.
