Question

You have confirmed in your answer to my MQ 2014/2334 that while interventions to support parents returning to work have been proposed in the London Enterprise Panel's 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Strategy, that the Strategy may be revised after the national programme of structural funds has been decided. Will you commit to doing all within your power to ensure that parental employment remains part of the Strategy? If for whatever reason it is dropped, will you commit to devising your own parental employment strategy, given your manifesto commitment "to create 20,000 part time jobs to help parents return to work"?
