Alliance responds as Tulip Siddiq announced as shadow early years minister 

Responding to the announcement, Neil Leitch, chief executive of the Early Years Alliance, said:
“We’re very pleased to see Tulip Siddiq return to the role of shadow early years minister. During her time as chair of the APPG for Childcare and Early Education she was a passionate and dedicated advocate for funding levels that cover the true cost of delivering quality childcare who understood the challenges the sector faces.

“The coming months are an especially vital time for the sector with the end of the funding freeze, the Budget and a probably Spending Review giving the government ample opportunity to reset the debate when it comes to the sector’s ongoing sustainability. We look forward to working with Tulip to ensure these chances are not wasted.”
