To ask the Solicitor General if she will make a statement on the creche facilities made available by the Department to the children of the Department's staff. [121115]

None of the Departments for which the Attorney General holds ministerial responsibility provide creche facilities. However, the Treasury Solicitor's Department has a contract through the Cabinet Office, with Childcare Enterprises Ltd. This company provides a holiday play scheme to which Treasury Solicitor's staff can apply at a cost, currently, of £30 per day. Half the cost is subsequently met by the Department. In the current financial year, 2002–03, seven staff have used the play scheme service, at a cost to the Department of £1,476.00.
