§ Ms. Richardson
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what child care provision his Department provides for pre-school age children of the Department's employees; what child care provision for school holiday and/or after school care is 459W provided for employees' children aged five and over; what plans there are for increasing provision in the next five years; and how these are to be funded.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has no child care provision at present, either for the preschool age group or for those aged five and over.
There is a proposal to provide child care facilities for the pre-school age group and/or a holiday play scheme. Both would be user-funded.
