Israel Beiteinu revealed on Monday that The Ministerial Committee on Economics and Society canceled last Monday the employment requirement for subsidizing daycare and education for ages three to nine.
The employment rule was recommended by the Trajtenberg Committee on social change. Israel Beiteinu demanded that the government reinstate the condition.
The 17-minister committee, led by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, holds meetings that are closed to the press and does not release its protocols.
Tourism Minister Stas Meseznikov sent a letter to Netanyahu appealing the "miserable" decision.
The tourism minister, a member of the Ministerial Committee on Economics and Society, called to reverse the change, calling it a "underhanded opportunism" that must be immediately reversed.
