Whilst the Committee stage continues on 4 November when further amendments will be discussed, there are two provisional sittings for this stage scheduled, one on the 11th and the other on the 18th of November.

  • adoption and children in care
  • aspects of the family justice system
  • children and young people with special educational needs
  • the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England
  • statutory rights to leave and pay for parents and adopters
  • time off work for ante-natal care
  • the right to request flexible working
