The BBC says:

Parents of children of all ages should be able to ask to work flexible hours, says Conservative leader David Cameron.

Employers already have to consider requests from parents with children under six for family friendly hours.

Mr Cameron said he was also looking at a possible tax allowance for families where one parent stays at home.
Mr Cameron told BBC Radio 4's Today programme his party had talked to the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) about his plans to allow more people to ask to work flexible hours.

"I think it will help people have a better work-life balance, that's really important - that's the centre ground for me, it's the issues people care about in their lives," he said.

The majority (people who breed) stealing yet more money from the minority. It would not be half so bad if people who had children actually thanked the rest of society instead of constantly complaining that they need ever more of a subsidy to support their chosen lifestyle. And what about "better work-life balance" for people responsible enough not to have children on a way over populated planet.
