Voters prioritise more money for childcare and preschools over business tax cut: poll

Latest News | Mar 05, 2015

Australian voters think increased funding for childcare and preschools is more important than a tax cut for big businesses, a new poll has found. 

It comes as cabinet considers boosting childcare funding and Social Services Minister Scott Morrison devises a new approach to families policy. 

In results that will increase pressure on the Coalition to transfer the big business levy that was meant to fund paid parental leave to childcare, the Essential Research poll has found a majority of Australian voters across gender, age and party groupings think there should be more money for childcare – with a total support rating of 64 per cent.
