On today's announcement of further changes to parental leave, Fionnuala Horrocks-Burns, policy adviser at the Forum of Private Business said:

"All businesses now accept the necessity of parental leave. All they ask is a little bit of consistency and clarity in policy. This is an area no political party has managed to achieve in the last ten years.

"Year after year politicians change the laws in this area so it's no wonder small businesses report an endless rise in the cost of compliance."
