I'm pretty sure the government paid paternity leave is two weeks at minimum wage - I've never investigated beyond that though so I could very well be wrong.
I assumed it was similar to the PPL in that it was in addition to any contractual entitlements.

My hubby gets 5 days from work at full pay and then he can also apply for the govt. min wage 2 weeks

ETA - therefore, as per the NES he's entitled to 3 weeks unpaid parental leave as the non-primary carer.
He will more than likely be entitled to the 2 weeks govt dad / partner parental leave as we'll, but that's treated as being completely seperate to unpaid parental leave (even though they're taken at the same time).

My dh will get 3 days fully paid from his work plus 2 weeks govt paid leave @ minimum wage. Then he will take an additional 1 week and 2 days to make up 4 weeks in total of paternity leave.
