To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether any companies stated during the recent bidding process for the HM Courts & Tribunals Service's security guarding service contract that they would pay employees the Living Wage as certified by the Living Wage Foundation; and if he will make a statement.

The recent tender for security services for HMCTS had two bidders who stated they would pay the guards over the National Living Wage and towards a level approaching the UK Real Living Wage. The offers were a mix of base pay, based on the National Living Wage, and attendance bonuses and therefore not completely aligned to the Real Living Wage.
