Low Pay Commission: National Minimum Wage

Volume 600: debated on Monday 12 October 2015

I am pleased to announce that the Government have published policy evidence to support the Low Pay Commission’s research towards recommendations due in 2016. I have written to the LPC to set out what we would like the Commission to consider on the national minimum wage and national living wage. This document contains policy information relating to the national minimum wage legislation and wider Government policy which may impact upon the Low Pay Commission’s recommendations.

Economic evidence will be published before the end of the year when the latest information on earnings and economic forecasts is available.

A copy of the evidence will be placed in the Libraries of the House and will be available from the BIS website at:
