Lucy Powell...the MP who gave lots of wonderful evidence at the C&F Bill debates against ratios and agencies is, in a way stating the obvious, as childcare is THE first link to the economy but I am concerned at this push towards the 'universal childcare' or 25 hrs of free childcare...who is going to pay for it when we can hardly afford to subsidise 15 hrs?

She is going to be at a session on a Saturday conference in London and I am going to be there listening and maybe put the odd question or two!!
