A new childcare package announced by the Prime Minister has been welcomed by Keighley MP Kris Hopkins.

He said it would provide 20 per cent support on childcare costs up to £10,000 a year for each child, via a simple online system.

And the government would also cover 85 per cent of childcare costs for around 300,000 families receiving Universal Credit.

Mr Hopkins said: “Many constituents have expressed understandable concerns to me about the rising costs of childcare and this new scheme is very good news for them and for every parent who has struggled to find high quality, affordable care for their children.

“These measures are the result of a major consultation exercise with parents, childcare providers, employers and other interested groups.”
