Uptake of Government-Paid Child Care Leave Scheme By Working Parents in Past Five Years

Uptake of Government-Paid Child Care Leave Scheme By Working Parents in Past Five Years

Mr Louis Ng Kok Kwang 
MP for Nee Soon GRC

Question


To ask the Minister for Social and Family Development for each year in the past five years under the Government-Paid Child Care Leave (GPCL) Scheme (a) what is the number and percentage of working mothers with (i) one child (ii) two children or (iii) more than two children who have taken six days of childcare leave respectively; and (b) what is the number and percentage of working fathers with (i) one child (ii) two children or (iii) more than two children who took six days of childcare leave respectively.

Answer

1. Currently, when employers submit claims for Government-Paid Child Care Leave (GPCL), we only check whether the employee has a child below 7 years old. We do not request information on the number of children the employee has. As such, the information requested is not readily available.
