Centre won’t be affected by childcare cuts

DAY CARE operator Marjorie Mann in Mt Lawley won’t be affected by cutbacks in childcare subsidies, says local Liberal MP Michael Sutherland (“Cuts ‘level playing field’,” Voice, August 6, 2016).

Mr Sutherland got a letter from community services minister Tony Simpson in late July which identified that only the Meela and Mt Lawley childcare centres would be affected in his electorate. They’ll lose rent, maintenance and insurance subsidies.

Mr Simpson’s letter says the local government and communities department was investigating whether to vest the centres with local governments, hand over the land freehold to the centres themselves, or to sell it off.
