Women’s Equality Party says free childcare would drive UK economy

Sophie Walker, leader of the Women’s Equality Party, has said the party would invest in “social infrastructure”, prioritising policies such as free childcare.

Speaking on the Daily Politics programme on the BBC, Walker said free childcare would drive the economy forward and transform lives.

She said policies that work for women would pay-off as a political system that worked better for all, and investing in free childcare would “have a positive knock-on for everyone in a very, very positive way”.

Walker, who is contending for the Shipley seat against Conservative MP Phil Davies, is one of seven WEP candidates standing in the General Election.
