It's likely chancellor George Osborne could introduce a £1,200 tax break per child to working couples when Osborne announces details of the Budget mid-week. Effectively it means a sweetener on the first £6,000 a family have to fork out for childminders and nursery care. Even nannies. Catch? It will likely only be available to families where both parents work. %VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
