I have been asked to reply on behalf of the Home Department.

The Government is taking action to support working parents in a number of areas including through a new system of shared parental leave, giving parents much greater flexibility over how they use their entitlement.

We are also helping parents with the cost of child care and increasing provision of free child care for the less well off.
