This is no surprise:

John Cridland, deputy director general of the CBI said: "The CBI welcomes the Government\’s plan to review when and how the right to request flexible working will be extended to parents of older children. It should beware of increasing numbers eligible to request too far too fast, however, as this could jeopardise the future flexibility of those currently eligible."

No doubt the CBI does welcome it. For such plans hit small business disproportionately heavily, big business being able to deal with it better. Thus the small strivers who compete with big business are hamstrung. How could you not welcome such a development?

  1. It is worth noting that the membership of the CBI, as is that of the FSB and the BCC, is predominantly made up of small and medium sized businesses, representing the profile of business size in the UK and almost every other country. They do not represent the largest corporations, as they can represent themselves quite adequately.
