Holly Lynch: Last week, I spoke in the national living wage debate to highlight the potential injustice of the decision to deny the living wage to those under 25.

I turn now to the proposal for an increase in the income thresholds based...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Home Care Services: Pay (25 Apr 2016)

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.
