Child Care

Dear Mr Murphy

Thank you for your letters of 15 December 2011 regarding petitions requesting the House to delay the implementation of the National Quality Reform Agenda on long-day childcare. Reference numbers 594/983, 597/986, 596/985, 595/984 and 592/978 refer.

I have noted the petition and appreciate the time you have taken to bring this matter to my attention. The implementation of the National Quality Reform Agenda on long-day childcare falls within the portfolio responsibilities of the Minister for Employment Participation and the Minister for Early Childhood and Childcare, the Hon Kate MP. I note you have forwarded these petitions to Minister Ellis. Please be assured that Minister Ellis is best placed to address this issue.

from the Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, Ms Macklin
