STATEMENT - CHILD CARE CLAIMS PLAIN WRONG

Comments by both Peta Credlin and Miranda Devine today are full of basic factual inaccuracies and false premises.

Claims that fraudulent behavior in the Family Day Care sector is linked to the introduction of the National Quality Framework are wrong, baseless and unsupported. 

This is a point the Turnbull Government have made themselves.

“I haven’t linked these problems to the National Quality Framework”

Three Liberal child care ministers have announced crack-downs on Family Day Care fraud, but it hasn’t worked.

Labor has consistently said we will work with the Government to protect taxpayers money and make sure it is doing what it is supposed to – helping children and families.
