Women & Equalities Questions 24th March 2021

Pressed the UK Government this morning on the need for the right to request flexible working from day one of employment.


Covid has down that there is the possibility of working differently, and we can't allow the recovery to be a return to the old ways of working. This is an issue disproportionately affecting women trying to juggle caring and work responsibilities.


We need change, and it's past time the UK Government accepted this and legislated for it. Regrettably, the Minister respoding gave no response to the actual questions asked.
