As at 1 April 2018 there are no direct employees in the core department paid less than the living wage as defined by the Living Wage Foundation.

As at this date there are also no agency staff paid less than the living wage as defined by the Living Wage Foundation.

We do not centrally hold details of the pay levels of staff working for outsourced companies contracted by BEIS.

I have asked Chief Executives of the executive agencies to respond directly to the Hon. Member.
