Childcare inquiry to improve system for Hinkler residents

Tuesday, 19 November 2013

Federal Member for Hinkler, Keith Pitt has welcomed an inquiry into child care and early childhood learning across Australia.

Mr Pitt said the Productivity Commission inquiry, as promised by the Coalition, would examine ways to make the child care system more flexible, affordable and accessible.

“This inquiry is the first public examination of its type since the 1990s,” Mr Pitt said.

“Hinkler families deserve quality care and early learning at a price they can afford.”

The Productivity Commission will conduct public hearings and invite submissions, and report back by the end of October 2014.
