FF pledges childcare tax credits
19 Apr 2015 14:02
Fianna Fáil has said it would give tax credits for childcare to working parents if was in government after the next election.
-
RTÉ News understands that the proposal will form part of the party's policy on childcare, which will be published next week.
-
The tax credits would be offered on a tiered basis which would mean that those earning less would benefit greatest.
-
Fianna Fáil is pledging to increase maternity leave beyond the current 26 weeks.
-
The party is also promising to extend the State-funded universal pre-school year to three year olds.
-
Funding for this sector for training and facilities would also be increased, the party said.
-
These proposals follow a year of consultation with groups working in the childcare area.
