Minimum Wage

Volume 704: debated on Monday 13 October 2008

My honourable friend the Minister of State for Employment Relations and Postal Affairs (Pat McFadden) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

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 workers including vulnerable workers, migrant workers and staff receiving tips.

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 the House and will be available from the BERR website at
