As recommended by the Low Pay Commission, we have chosen two sectors that employ large numbers of migrant workers and British workers for targeted enforcement. In 2007-08 we focused on the hotel sector. For 2008-09 we will be looking at the wider hospitality sector, which includes hotels, camping sites and other provision of short-stay accommodation, restaurants, bars, canteens and catering.
