This will fund more than 100,000 additional incentive payments for employers to take on young apprentices aged 16 to 24, providing a major boost to their job prospects. I confirm the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Sheikh, about the minimum wage being paid, although I take on board the issue raised in that regard by the noble Lord, Lord Young. I hope that he will...

At the current rate of the minimum wage, a parent would need to expect to earn 52 a week on average to meet that condition. I am sure members of the Committee...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014)

Samantha Mann: No, we have not carried out specific research on this question. As employer-supported child care stands, an employee cannot sacrifice their pay below the national minimum wage that prevails for their age group, so any employee who is currently in receipt of the national minimum wage is excluded from employer-supported child care. The advantage of child care payments is that...

Women and Equalities: Equal Pay (16 October 2014)

Jo Swinson: As I said in yesterday’s debate on the national minimum wage, great shock has been expressed in all parts of the House about Lord Freud’s remarks, which in no way reflect the opinion of the Government. It is therefore quite right that he has apologised in full for those remarks. It is right to set out on the record that people in all parts of the House believe that the minimum...

Jo Swinson: ...than the political to and fro or the very politicised wording of the motion might suggest. The hon. Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Mr Brown) gave us a welcome reminder of the history of the national minimum wage and his experience on the Bill Committee, which had two overnighters to make the legislation happen. When he was doing that in 1997, I was working in McDonald’s on...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (14 October 2014)

Baroness Howe of Idlicote: ...would be happy to make that case—or part of it, anyhow. Child protection law clearly defines a child as a person under the age of 18. This is enshrined in the Children Act 1989 and in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. However, the law on neglect is 80 years old, so quite clearly it is seriously out of date. In 1933, life as a 16 year-old was very different....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Living Wage:  NICVA Report (16 September 2014)

Stephen Farry: It is important that we approach the issue of the living wage with a degree of caution. I encourage employers to consider the living wage. It is important that people are paid well. I think that we need to be slightly cautious about where we would go for a degree of compulsion for employers to pay a living wage. The first thing that we have to do is recognise that the...

Written Answers — Treasury: Minimum Wage (12 September 2014)

David Gauke: The Government takes the enforcement of National Minimum Wage (NMW) very seriously and HMRC enforce NMW legislation on behalf of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and has done so since the introduction of NMW in April 1999.
