HC Deb 19 February 1990 vol 167 c500W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Lord President of the Council what paternity leave is allowed to staff in his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

At present paternity leave is not available to civil servants. The Treasury is, however, finalising arrangements for the introduction of the recently agreed entitlement to two days paid paternity leave.
