Taxation of Low-income Families

The following is an extract from a debate on Taxation of Low-income Families in Westminster Hall on 16 January 2019.

The Conservative party introduced the national living wage. We should be enormously proud of that fact. It goes up by 4.9% in April, so those in full-time employment will take home £2,750 more than they did in 2010.

[Official Report, 16 January 2019, Vol. 652, c. 398WH.]

Letter of correction from Mel Stride:

An error has been identified in my response to this debate.

The correct wording should have been:

The Conservative party introduced the national living wage. We should be enormously proud of that fact. It goes up by 4.9% in April, so those in full-time employment will take home £2,750 more than they did in 2016.
