You won't have missed the headline that the Government is planning to extend shared parental leave to include grandparents.
For those who find themselves answering questions about it, here are some important 'small print' points missed off most of the press reports:-

- it only affects working grandparents (non-working grandparents aren't likely to meet the eligibility criteria)
- the Government will consult on the details during the first half of 2016
