My Department does not operate any workplace nurseries; staff have access to the Westminster Holiday Play Scheme which parents can use during the school holidays.

My Department has two executive non-departmental public bodies—the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and the Parades Commission for Northern Ireland; and one advisory non-departmental public body—the Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland. As such bodies are independent of Government, the hon. Member may wish to write to the Commissions directly on this matter—contact details are set out in the following table:

Public Body Status Contact Details
Parades Commission for Northern Ireland Executive NDPB
Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission Executive NDPB
Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland Advisory NDPB
