Four months have passed since the end of the Government’s consultation on tips, gratuities and service charges, but abuses are still happening, with workers being told that they will receive a share of the service charge only if their pay is cut by a third.

Will the Government now provide time as soon as possible for the new Business Secretary to make a statement on this matter?
