National Minimum Wage

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 11 October 2006

I am pleased to announce that the Government wrote to the Low Pay Commission on 22 September setting out our non-economic evidence on the national minimum wage.

The evidence outlines the Government's view on the following issues:

Accommodation Offset

Enforcement

Publicity and awareness

Particular groups of workers and related Government issues

Bank Holidays

The evidence has been placed in the Libraries of the House and will also be available on my Department's website at: www.dti.gov.uk
