Govt to crackdown on childcare fraud

AAP logoAAP 10/09/2016

The Turnbull government will introduce a raft of new measures to crack down on childcare fraud and abuses when parliament sits this week.

The measures include ensuring subsidy claims are not being made for care provided by parents, siblings or, in the case of Family Day Care, in a child's home, while coming down hard on any service that conceals any staff member charged or convicted of a serious crime.

"This is a win-win for families and taxpayers," Education Minister Simon Birmingham said in a statement on Sunday.
