The Government should appoint a Minister for Families to support stay-at-home parents, MPs have said. A group of 44 Conservative MPs has written to the Prime Minister urging him to champion the rights of single-earner families, which they say help to meet his manifesto promise to ‘strengthen families’. They say that parents who choose to stay at home to look after their children, rather than returning to work, deserve support but have been largely forgotten by policymakers. The letter’s signatories said: “As you take this manifesto commitment forward may we ask you to consider establishing a Cabinet-level minister for Families, supported by a Government Families Office.” They added: “Evidence shows that the biggest factor in determining how people vote is the impact policies will have on them and their families. “YouGov found that 81 per cent of British adults think stronger families and improved parenting are important to addressing Britain’s social problems.”
