Consultations have been, and are being, held right across the country—2,000 people have attended, 400 written submissions have been received and online surveys have been completed by over 1,000 parents. We released these options, and will continue to look at all the options. I can inform parents that no decision has yet been made in relation to the final position of the government. We will continue to work with the sector, we will continue to work with childcare providers and we will continue to work with community organisations to make sure we get the balance right and that our children are put first.
