National Minimum Wage

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

I am pleased to announce that the Government have written to the Low Pay Commission setting out the non-economic evidence on the national minimum wage. The evidence addresses enforcement, publicity and awareness and policy issues including apprenticeships, homeworkers and young workers.

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 BIS website at: www.bis.gov.uk.
