On Shared Parental Leave

Earlier this year, we ran a £1.5 million campaign to promote awareness and the take-up of shared parental leave and pay.

We are currently evaluating the scheme, looking at ​take-up and the barriers to it and at how the scheme is being used in practice. We expect to publish our findings next summer.

On Business, Energy and Industry Strategy

We have also assessed—working with the CMA, obviously—that the CMA might have to deal with between 30 and 50 extra merger cases over a year.

Somehow, we’re back: It’s been a tough year for all of us, and we had to take a little step back from The Political Medway. But we’re back now, and trying to provide as much good, independent coverage of politics in Medway as we can. We are a volunteer run team, and while there’s lots of things we’d like to cover, we only have a finite amount of time and resources we can dedicate to this. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a one-off or monthly contribution via our Ko-fi. If you aren’t in a position to donate right now, that’s totally cool, and we really appreciate you stopping by regardless.
