Older Persons: Human Rights and Care - Motion to Take Note (16 Nov 2017)

Lord Sawyer: ...about cash. It is about saying that we respect people and value their work enough to say that, despite all the other pressures on us, we are going to make more resources available to pay them above the minimum wage, which is basically where they are now, and pay enough money to give them proper training and development. It is not going to happen, but I think it is a good test for the next...

Following...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Chris Green: ...might not be so able to offer that support. Such a person would be in a far trickier position if they were receiving benefits, or looking forward to receiving benefits, perhaps having lived on the minimum wage or the living wage.

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (15 Nov 2017)

Lord Turnbull: ...taxpayers with incomes of over £10,000 a year unless they secured an exemption as digitally excluded, which is not easily done.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Living Wage (15 Nov 2017)

Elizabeth Truss: The National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage rates are the legal minimums that employers must pay their workers. The government welcomes employers opting to pay more than this when they can afford to do so, including the Living Wage Foundation’s voluntary rate. The key thing we can do as a country to increase the average wages of employees, and to ensure more businesses can pay...

Brexit: Food Prices - Question (14 Nov 2017)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, I hope that the noble Baroness will accept that the Government have done a number of things, including introducing a new mandatory national living wage which has meant a £600 a year increase in earnings for a full-time worker on the previous national minimum wage.
