Cuts to Sure Start won't make Cameron family friendly


Responding to David Cameron's speech in Gateshead today, Labour's Deputy Leader Harriet Harman MP, speaking from the Labour Party's South East Regional Conference in Hove, said:

"David Cameron should be supporting Sure Start, not planning cuts to a service many families rely on simply in response to his poor polling performance with families. 

"Cuts to Sure Start would hit the poorest hardest. Sure Start is making a difference to thousands of families up and down the country. "Labour has delivered better childcare and more family friendly rights at work, despite continued opposition from David Cameron and the Conservative Party."
