HC Deb 05 February 1985 vol 72 c479W
13. Ms Richardson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will take steps to implement the European Economic Community proposals on parental leave.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The proposals — in the form of a draft directive on parental leave and leave for family reasons — are under consideration within the European Community Council of Ministers. The Government have made clear their serious reservations about this and some other Commission proposals in the employment field.
