To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how many staff employed in London on work contracted to their employers by his Department earn less than £7.45 per hour. (273116)

[holding answer 7 May 2009]: The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills was created in June this year and made up of the former Departments of BERR and DIUS. That part of the Department which is ex- BERR does not have any directly employed staff earning less than £7.45 per hour in London. The pay and remuneration of staff employed by contractors used by ex- BERR is determined by their direct employers.

DIUS had already responded to this question before BIS was created 14 May 2009, Official Report, column 994W.
