To ask Her Majesty's Government whether a Cabinet-level minister has been appointed to coordinate cross-Government policy to strengthen families; and if so, (1) who is that minister, and (2) what support that minister will receive.
14 April 2020
Families are a responsibility for the whole of government and departments undertake the Family Test to assess the impact of policies on family relationships and functioning. However, families are at the heart of this government's agenda, and to reflect this a specific lead Cabinet-level minister will be appointed. This will be announced in due course.
