FOLLOWING Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero's “baby bonus” offer giving new parents in Spain the opportunity to claim initial financial support of 2'500 euros, there have been a number of preliminary enquiries made here in the Balearics to the offices of the central government regional representative.

Delegation sources confirmed yesterday that since last Tuesday when the Prime Minister mooted the cash offer for “parents to be” as of that date in his State of the Nation address, a number of residents in the Balearics have called asking for information on how to go about making application for such grants.

Central government administration has already sent instructions to all public information centres and to the “060” telephone advice network on what details to provide to interested parties on Zapatero's “encouragement” to increase the birth rate in Spain, it was reported.

The official steps needed to be taken by way of application will be published in the Official State Gazette (BOE) over the next few days.
Callers to the delegation offices are also being invited to leave their own home or mobile telephone numbers so that precise information can be passed on to them once it is available, sources said.

The websites of the central government ministries for Public Administration; for Employment and Social Affairs; and for the Social Security General Treasury also offer advice on this subject.
