Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Minimum Wage 22 Oct 2014

    The Government’s increase of 3% in the national minimum wage this year means that low-paid workers are enjoying the biggest cash increase in their take-home pay since 2008. The independent Low Pay Commission is responsible for recommending the level of the national minimum wage.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Minimum Wage 22 Oct 2014

    I am surprised that the hon. Lady raises that question, given that the commitment to 8 an hour by 2020 has been somewhat derided by independent commentators—Alan Milburn himself said that it lacked ambition—because the current projection shows that the minimum wage will rise to 8.23 an hour by 2020.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Minimum Wage 22 Oct 2014

    I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising that issue. Of course, it is a matter for employers to pay the living wage. The national minimum wage is set by the Low Pay Commission, but obviously when an employer can afford to pay the living wage, we would encourage them to do so.
