I wholeheartedly support your campaign for tax help with childcare costs. But this measure alone falls far short of the changes needed for the UK to become a family-friendly society.

Parents also deserve the right to decent maternity and paternity leave, the right to work shorter hours so that tiny children are not away from home for 10 or more hours a day, and the right to take time off work when a young child is sick.
