§ Dr. Marek
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what is the number of workplaces for civil servants in his Department; what proportion of the total number have an on-site nursery facility; how many and what proportion of workplaces provide a holiday play scheme; how many and what proportion of workplaces provide after-school child care facilities; what charges are made for use of any facility; what the net cost has been for the provision of these facilities; and what estimate he can make of any future expenditure.
§ Mr. Wakeham
My Department's staff are located at seven sites. In addition, there are various small offices where some two to three staff work. My Department does not provide nurseries, holiday play schemes, or after-school care and has no current plans to do so. However, my Department has participated in the holiday play scheme organised in the Westminster area by the office of the Minister for the Civil Service.
