North West MEP calls Clegg's paternity leave plans 'unworkable'
2:00pm Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in News
PROPOSALS by Nick Clegg to alter parental leave rules have been described as ‘unworkable’ by local MEP Paul Nuttall.
The Deputy Prime Minister believes the current system allowing a father to only take two weeks paternity leave is ‘old fashioned’ and proposes parents share 52 weeks leave.
UKIP deputy leader Mr Nuttall said: “The government should be helping businesses flourish, not add to the miles of red tape that is strangling them.”
