Defending Public Services (23 May 2016)

Chris Stephens: ...the largest growth industry in the United Kingdom. Who would have thought that we would be in an era where that was the case? Where is the legislation to crack down on the abuse of companies not complying with paying the national minimum wage?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...growth. I did not entirely agree on the issue of automation. I think that driverless cars and so on provide an opportunity for the UK, and they are in our plans for the next Session. Once changing relative wages and new jobs are taken into account, there is little evidence for the reduction in mid-level jobs. Since 2010, our economy has seen employment growth across nearly all the major...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 May 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: The national minimum wage was introduced by Labour. The national living wage proposed by the Prime Minister’s friend the Chancellor is, frankly, a corruption of the very idea.

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...

Lord Beecham: today about financial privilege as the Government are deploying a tactic of pleading it as a reason to reject amendments passed in this House.

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.
