Tax relief for working mums cautiously welcomed

“The Women’s Electoral Lobby has welcomed planned tax cuts for working mothers, but has questioned how many women will benefit from them

Chairwoman of the Women’s Electoral Lobby , Eva Cox, says “…I suspect the bulk of that’s going to come from the increase in the childcare rebate and the problem with that is, as soon as we start getting that through I suspect some of the private childcare centres will be raising their fees so that may disappear fairly quickly.”

It will interesting to see whether or not this will actually improve things for working mothers in the current economic climate. Any with more economic know-how then me care to enlighten us?
