How many Nursery owners has Teresa May spoken to regarding the 30 hours ‘free’ childcare offer?

We're waiting for Jo Morris to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department for Education

During PMQ’s on the 6th December, Ruth George MP highlighted that one of her constituents, a nursery owner, was having to sell her home to pay her staff redundancies because she was unable to continue to operate due to the 30 hours ‘free’ childcare offer.

Teresa May dismissed this saying the nursery owners she has spoken to said that the scheme was working.

How many owners has Mrs May spoken to and when were these conversations please?

Yours faithfully,
Jo Morris
