BURNHAM MP Tessa Munt welcomes a major childcare package which is set to help 3,110 parents in the Sedgemoor area.

Working families will be given up to £2,000 to ease childcare costs as part of a scheme to be rolled out in autumn 2015.

The Government has said it will provide 20% support on childcare costs up to £10,000 per year for each child.

Tessa said: “This news provides a huge boost to hard working families in Sedgemoor.

“We’re committed to building a stronger economy and a fairer society and this will help children get off to the best start in life.”
