Bridget Phillipson reveals Labour's childcare plans

Shadow Education Secretary Bridget Phillipson said early years and childcare support would be a priority if Labour came into power.

Ms Phillipson said Jeremy Hunt's autumn budget had a "pledge but no plan" for childcare.

"As an important first step, we will make sure all primary schools are delivering universal free breakfast clubs which will make a really big difference to children at the start of the day and improving education standards as well," Ms Phillipson said.

Starmer channels Blair & Miliband to launch election pledges

Sir Keir Starmer has unveiled a pledge card with six "first steps" the Labour Party would take if it were to form a government after the next general election. The steps include measures to invest in the NHS, education and policing, to set up a new national energy company and an elite border force, and to promote economic stability. The move, unveiled during a campaign speech in Essex, is reminiscent of Tony Blair’s five pledges ahead of Labour’s landslide victory in 1997, and less favourably of Ed Miliband’s promises carved into stone in 2015.
