Tulip Siddiq MP Shadow Minister for Early Years

Today I was proud to begin my tenure as Shadow Minister for Early Years, joining my frontbench colleagues for Education Questions.

I pushed the Minister on the consequences of their new funding formula, which will leave 25% of local authorities worse off and threatens hundreds of nurseries with closure.

I asked the Minister to reassure millions of parents and teachers across the country by committing the necessary funding after the first two years, to ensure that the promise of 30 hours free childcare is honoured.
