HC Deb 05 December 1989 vol 163 c195W
23. Mr. Allen McKay

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has to encourage the provision of child care facilities in the workplace.

Mr. Nicholls

The Government believe that child care is a matter for parental choice and that it is best. left to employers and employees to decide which arrangements for combining work and family responsibilities best suit their individual needs and resources. Workplace child care is not always the most practicable solution.
