Barisan considering child care for manifesto


Barisan Nasional is considering including Universal Child Care as part of its general election manifesto, said Johor Baru MP Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad.

Shahrir, who is also the Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club (BNBBC) chairman, said he had raised the matter with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak following a Unicef study which revealed that children living in low-cost housing, such as PPR flats, suffered higher levels of malnutrition.
