To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills with reference to the answer of 6 May 2014, Official Report, column 87W, on holiday leave, what assessment his Department has made of the conclusions of the Citizens Advice report entitled Give us a Break on the lack of awareness and denial of paid holiday entitlement to UK workers.

The Citizens Advice report, Give us a Break, was a formal submission to the Ministerial Review of Workplace Rights, Compliance and Enforcement and therefore this Department assessed the report along with other submissions to the review. The written ministerial statement following the review was laid in Parliament on 10 July 2012. We continually review a broad range of evidence. As outlined in reply of 6 May 2014, Hansard, column 87W, the right to paid annual leave is an important right, and we would urge workers who feel they are not receiving it to contact the Pay and Work Rights Helpline (0800 917 2368) or ACAS for free and confidential advice.
