Mr. McNamara

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the child care or nursery facilities within his Department; and what is the breakdown in their use(a) by grade and (b) by gender. [15237]

Mr. Lang

[holding answer 30 March 1995]: My Department operates an on-site nursery at East Craigs, Edinburgh, which is licensed for 15 full-time equivalent places. A total of 17 staff use the facility—12 female and five male. The grade breakdown is as follows:

Grade equivalent Number
7 2
EO 6
AO 5
AA 1
Total 17

A further 30 to 35 place nursery is due to open at Victoria quay, Edinburgh in autumn 1995. In addition, my staff have access to a holiday play scheme operated by Customs and Excise in Edinburgh.
