The House of Commons is accredited by Citizens UK as a London Living Wage Employer. The terms of its accreditation licence require that contractors and sub-contractors with dedicated staff who are based on parliamentary premises are paying those staff at least the London Living Wage.

Contractors and sub-contractors which provide services in relation to our contracts, while not having a presence on parliamentary premises, are required to pay dedicated staff at least the London Living Wage, or the UK Living Wage if based outside London.

We can confirm that to our knowledge, all dedicated staff are being paid either the London Living Wage or the UK Living Wage.
