To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to The Prime Minister's oral contribution of 28 November 2018, Official Report, column 246 and pursuant to the Answer of 18 June 2019 to Question 264462, on Parental Leave: Childbirth, whether the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has informed her of his reasons for the key findings of the review of the provisions for parents of premature babies to not now be shared with interested parties.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
26 June 2019
The review of provisions for parents of premature babies was an internal review undertaken by officials of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to help them provide advice to Ministers. Advice to Ministers is not routinely shared outside of Government departments.
As indicated in my response to Question 264462, the findings of this review will help to inform the public consultation on options for further support for parents of premature, sick and multiple babies, which we will launch before the end of the Summer.
We look forward to working with interested parties during the consultation process.
