HC Deb 19 February 1990 vol 167 c592W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what paternity leave is allowed to staff in his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waddington

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