To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the Answer of 13 January 2022 to Question 100575 on Parental Leave, when he plans to publish the report of his Department's evaluation of the Shared Parental Leave and Pay scheme.

Evaluating Shared Parental Leave and Pay is an important part of the policymaking process.

As part of the evaluation, we commissioned large, representative surveys of parents and employees which asked about a range of parental leave and pay entitlements as well as their experience of Shared Parental Leave specifically. We also consulted on high-level options for reforming parental leave and pay.

We are currently considering this information and will publish our findings in due course.
