EU Immigration — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (5 May 2016)

Philip Hollobone: ...will not slow the intake of EU migrants to our shores at all. A report this week says that only 6% of such migrants would be affected by the proposals, and I would suggest that the very welcome increase in the national minimum wage and the new national living wage will act as a far greater magnet for workers to come here from other European Union countries. Increasingly, even more than...

Business of the House (28 Apr 2016)

Chris Grayling: It has been the policy of this Government, and indeed of the previous Government, to differentiate in respect of minimum and living wages when it comes to younger workers and older workers precisely because when a young worker enters the workplace the employer is making an investment decision as well as a recruitment decision.

Nicholas Boles: The Government is clear that anyone who is entitled to the National Minimum Wage (NMW) and National Living Wage (NLW) should receive the NMW/NLW.

National Living Wage (18 Apr 2016)

Joan Ryan: ...up, but it was about applying pressure. That was not the promise that the Chancellor made; the Minister cannot guarantee that all people will be better off and will get the pay rise.
