To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in the Parliament assembled.

The petition of the undersigned strongly oppose the cuts to Childcare Assistance available for holiday absences for families who use long day care centres.

These cuts, which both the Liberal/National Coalition and the ALP support, reduce the amount of Childcare Assistance previously paid by the Government to parents for allowable holiday absences by half.

Your Petitioners ask that the Senate reverse its support for these regressive changes to Childcare Assistance.
