Low Pay Commission

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

I am pleased to announce that the Government have written to the Low Pay Commission setting out our non-economic evidence on the national minimum wage. The evidence addresses enforcement; publicity and awareness; the extension of statutory annual leave; social care; and workers, including vulnerable workers, migrant workers, volunteers and apprentices.

The Government will be submitting their economic evidence to the Commission later this year.

A copy of the non-economic evidence will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses and will be available from the BERR website at
