Six-month anniversary of the Government’s detail-free child care changes; Christian Porter’s claims that teenagers will benefit from child care changes

"What the Government needs to know is what every parent knows, and that is children grow up, not down. You cannot strip funding off families who have teenage children and claim that they will be better off because you are putting funding into the child care system."

Unfair cuts to family payments; child care changes

KATE ELLIS, SHADOW MINISTER FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD: Today the impact of Malcolm Turnbull's cuts to families is becoming even clearer. Less than a week after these cuts were unveiled, Scott Morrison has conceded that many families would be hit hard. What we know is that millions of Australian families will be much worse off because of these hits. Hits to low and middle-income Australian families. We also know that the lie has been exposed that these cuts are needed in order to fund the government's child care package. We know this because the Government’s own Senator Sinodinos said that it was a political solution to link the two, and that there is no policy reason why you can’t find savings for child care in other areas of Government. What is becoming very clear is that whilst Labor stood up against Tony Abbott's cuts to families, that millions of Australian families would still be worse off under Malcolm Turnbull’s cuts to their payments. And that is why we will continue to point out the impact that this will have on millions of families.
