Following Second Reading of the Childcare Bill on 16 June 2015, I have written to colleagues responding to points raised in the debate. This included the government’s consideration of the impact of the Childcare Bill provisions on child poverty, the Public Sector Equality Duty, the government’s Family Test, the European Convention on Human Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. A full economic impact assessment will be published when draft regulations are published for public consultation in due course.

The government has also made a policy statement available to the House of Lords, setting out further details on the government’s intention behind the legislation and to aid Peers in their scrutiny of the Bill ahead of Committee Stage.
