The government are determined that everyone who is entitled to the National Minimum and Living Wage (NMW) receives it.

The ‘National Living Wage’ is a rate for workers aged 25 and over which was introduced in April 2016.

Anyone who feels they have been underpaid NMW should contact the Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) review all complaints that are referred to them.

I refer the honourable member to the answer provided at UIN 126663 for information on prosecution results.
