Will the minister join me in congratulating Carers Scotland on its excellent booklet "Carers and their Rights", which was launched today and which will be a vital tool for every carer in Scotland? Does he agree that, for carers to stay in or to seek work, flexible working, respite care, time to take up training and all the issues around getting into employment are vital? How will he work to support the discussion that needs to happen in the workplace to enable carers to take up or to stay in employment?
