Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
5th Apr 2022
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the benefits to employers and carer employees of introducing a statutory right to carers' leave; and what plans they have, if any, to introduce legislation conferring such a statutory right.

The Government has consulted on proposals for a statutory right to carer’s leave, including the benefits for both employers and employees. The Government response to this consultation was published in September 2021 and included an assessment of the consultation findings.

The legislative programme for the next parliamentary session will be set out at the Queen’s Speech.

Lord Callanan
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy)
22nd Feb 2022
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the adequacy of the recourse available through the family courts where a child has been abducted from the UK to an EU Member State which is not a party to the 1980 Hague Convention, now that the Brussels II Regulation no longer applies.

Applications for the return of a child wrongfully removed or wrongfully retained away from the UK are made to the court in the country where the child has been taken or retained. All EU member states are party to the 1980 Hague Child Abduction Convention and the UK continues to operate the Convention with them through the Central Authorities which transmit applications. This position was not changed by the UK’s exit from the EU.
