HC Deb 25 March 2002 vol 382 c735W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the(a) financial costs and (b) benefits to his Department of the parental leave directive. [42484]

Ruth Kelly

Treasury staff are eligible for unpaid parental leave under the parental leave directive. Central records are not kept on the amounts of unpaid parental leave taken. The Treasury also has a number of other family friendly policies in place, for example alternative working practices, paid special leave, career breaks, to help staff strike a balance between home life and work.
