HC Deb 25 March 2002 vol 382 cc741-2W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what creche facilities are provided by his Department; and at what cost. [44861]

Ruth Kelly

The Treasury offers staff access to subsidised places on a holiday playscheme and pays £15.60 towards the cost of each place, which represents 60 per cent. of the total cost. Around eight staff take up places for their children. Staff can also reclaim additional child care costs incurred, including the tax liability, if they have to work longer or later than normal.
