Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said: “Currently any parent with a child under 17, or under 18 if their child is disabled, can ask for more flexible working patterns. So compressed hours, flexi-time, working from home – that kind of thing.”

We’re working closely with business to get the detail right,” Clegg said. “Ultimately this change is good for business: firms will be able to retain their best staff. And it’s good for our economy: a modern workforce is a flexible workforce too.”

From 2015 “the UK will shift to an entirely new system of flexible parental” allowing mums to trigger flexible leave when it’s most needed.
