Departmental Nurseries

Volume 494: debated on Thursday 25 June 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what crèche facilities his Department provides for its employees working in Whitehall. (282230)

The Treasury does not provide any crèche facilities.

The Department supports its staff through the provision of child care vouchers for those eligible. These can be used to fund attendance at crèches at the most convenient locations for staff.

The Department is a member of the Westminster Holiday Playscheme, which operates during school holidays and is open to children aged 4 years and 9 months up to 12 years of age. The Treasury provides two rooms for this play scheme, which can accommodate up to 18 children.
