PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS CONSULTATION. CLICK ON LINK ABOVE.      DEADLINE IS 14TH OCTOBER 2013  THE GOVT PROPOSAL DISCRIMINATES AGAINST ONE-EARNER COUPLES MANAGING ON JUST ONE INCOME WITH CARE RESPONSIBILITIES. THIS MIGHT WELL AFFECT YOUR FAMILY.   ALL FAMILIES BEAR COSTS IN CHILDCARE WHETHER THEY PROVIDE CARE AT HOME OR OUTSOURCE CARE TO OTHER PROVIDERS.  

DUAL INCOME WORKING COUPLES ALREADY PAY A LOT LESS TAX THAN ONE-EARNER COUPLES ON SAME HOUSEHOLD INCOME.  

DUAL INCOME COUPLES ARE MORE LIKELY TO RETAIN CHILD BENEFIT.  

AND NOW WE HAVE THE TAX-FREE CHILDCARE PROPOSITION WHICH THEY PROPOSE WILL ONLY APPLY TO  FAMILIES WHERE ALL ADULTS ARE IN PAID WORK .  NO MENTION OF CARE RESPONSIBILITIES AT HOME.  UNPAID WORK IS NOT FACTORED IN. 

AGAIN ONE-WAGE FAMILIES TAKING CARE OF CHILDREN (OR OTHER DEPENDENTS) ARE BEING IGNORED.

October 2013
