Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether his Department offers a child care voucher scheme to (a) the Department’s staff and (b) those serving in the armed forces. (115926)

The Ministry of Defence has four salary plus child care voucher schemes, which are open to qualifying civilian employees who work at the Army Pay Centre, Glasgow, the Defence Bills Agency, Liverpool, the War Ship Support Agency, Rosyth and the Defence Science Technology Laboratory. The introduction of salary sacrifice child care voucher schemes for all civilian and military staff is dependent on the full introduction of the Department’s new pay systems scheduled for late autumn this year.
