Burch drops childcare bung

By johnboy - 30 May 2013 0

The unsavoury practice of pre-announcing budget goodies to massage the media perception continues today with Joy Burch and Andrew Barr doling out $2 million for upgrading community based childcare:

The 2013-14 ACT Budget will deliver an extra $2 million to continue the ACT Government’s successful childcare centre upgrade program, which has supported centres in Government owned premises to offer additional places for Canberra families.

ACT Minister for Education Joy Burch said the investment comes on top of almost $10 million committed in the two past budgets to refurbish and expand several community-based centres.

“Our investment has supported the childcare sector to grow substantially over the past decade, and record investment in recent budgets will ensure this growth continues,” Ms Burch said.
