Letter: Childcare tax breaks

The Independent Online
EVERY mother is a working mother, whether she works mainly in or outside the home, and it is about time the tax and benefit system recognised this. If women were paid a proper child benefit (reimbursable through a fairer tax system), then mothers would have a genuine choice about whether to pay for outside childcare so that they could go out to work, or whether to use the money to enable them to work in the home, bringing up their own children. Your campaign calls for the former option; most mothers would prefer to have the choice.
