if you are just returning from maternity leave, i believe they have to hold your old postion for you, and i think they have to let you do those hours if they are the only ones workable for you.
Im no expert but Im fairly sure... if the answers on here bring you no joy then try calling citizens advice , they will be able to tell you where you stand
They have to hold your position open by law.... but as it was before you went on maternity leave (including the hours/work pattern). You have the right to request part time and flexible working hours, and they have a legal responsibility now to consider your request, but if they can prove that it is not workable or in the company's interest to agree to your request, they are allowed to refuse it.
