United Kingdom: 30 hour free childcare policy in chaos as high-rent areas hardest-hit by delays

Children's Minister Robert Goodwill has visited just three nurseries providing free childcare.

The chaotic rollout of 30 hours’ free childcare policy hit families in high-rent metropolitan areas the hardest, HuffPost UK can reveal. 
Inner London, Outer London, East of England and the South East suffered most from the botched policy launch in September, with as many as 40% of parents unable to access the free childcare promised to them by Theresa May.
