Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura has not received support because the company did not apply for a subsidy system to support parents who had to take time off from work due to the temporary closure of schools nationwide last year. He showed his parents the idea of considering whether another system could provide support.
The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare established a subsidy system in March last year to support parents who had to take a break from work due to the temporary closure of their children's school due to the influence of the new coronavirus, but the subsidy paid Is less than 30% of the initial forecast, and it has been pointed out that "the cause is that companies do not apply."
Former Defense Minister Inada of the Liberal Democratic Party and other members of the Parliamentary League met with Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura on the 3rd, saying, "Since the government requested a temporary closure, parents whose income has decreased should be rescued." I asked parents who did not receive it to consider other support measures.
On the other hand, Minister Tamura, after showing his understanding of the offer, cannot provide support by utilizing the "leave of absence support fund" system that supports people who are not paid the leave allowance even though they have taken a rest according to the instructions of the company. I showed the idea to consider.
