Offering child care would help boost the economy, the shadow chief secretary to the Treasury said today, after Labour announced it was at the top of their agenda this weekend.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Ms Reeves said: “Well of course [childcare] would [help]. If we could get the rates up to Scandinavian countries, it would be a good thing.”

She drops strong indications that Labour will have more to say next week on child care and on raising the minimum wage.

“If it had kept pace with the FTSE 100 top pay, it would be worth almost £19 an hour. Making sure that it keeps pace with prices and average earnings will be part of our offer at the next election.”
