HC Deb 16 March 2004 vol 419 c180W
Mrs. Curtis-Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many residents of Crosby qualify for paid leave entitlements. [160539]

Mr. Sutcliffe

All workers resident in Crosby qualify for paid annual leave entitlements—at least four weeks as set out in the Working Time Regulations. While all women are entitled to 26 weeks ordinary maternity leave, only those who meet the eligibility criteria will be to claim statutory maternity pay for that period.

All employees in Crosby who are eligible will be entitled to take statutory paternity leave with pay and statutory adoption leave with pay.
