    No mention of agencies though - wonder if this is the 'compromise' to get agencies through

    Have just e-mailed the news to other childminders in my address book and have asked them to spread the good news but to keep fighting the campaign to introduce agencies. Thank you to everyone on the forum who have fought so hard and continued to try to motivate us all to write to MP's etc.

    Just had a thought - maybe the picnics in the park on Childrens Day last Saturday worked after all - and I was up for a strike and a protest!

    It appears it is true ...all over twitter and everyone commenting
    This is Clegg's statement

    BBC News - Clegg says nursery ratio changes are being scrapped

    Think ratios was a trojan horse to distract us while they sneak agencies in behind our backs - and Nick Clegg is loving taking all the credit for this when he only spoke up about it 2 weeks ago!

    I agree , the ratios didnt worry me , people wont stick to them anyway

    Im more concerned about agencies too

    we need to fight just as hard if not harder to scrap them

    well done everyone who joined the campaign for this , wrote letters and signed petitions

    one down , one to go

    What we need to do now is keep the pressure against agencies...no one wants or needs them and, from what I heard at the conference today no one is interested in setting them up...lets hope that will be the next UTurn
    With appropriate and equal support from LAs all cms can raise quality even further...

    Crikey that was an unexpected surprise to me, would be great if this was the start of the end of MGC. I can't understand why the Government want to bring in Agencies - surely they can see that it isn't going to save parents any money - I certainly wont be absorbing the costs - will pass it on to parents. Unless the ulterior motive is to eventually 'lose' childminders or have us extremely controlled and not have the freedom that we are used to.
