Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Living Wage (15 Jul 2015)

Question: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what discussions he has had with businesses to encourage the paying of the living wage.

Answer: Nicholas Boles, The Minister for Universities and Science, Minister of State (Department for Business, Innovation and Skills) (Jointly with the Department for Education)

From April 2016, the Government will introduce a new National Living Wage for all workers aged 25 and over.

This will mean that 6 million people will see their pay rise over this Parliament with a cash increase for a full-time worker of around £5,000.

We continue to support and encourage employers to pay more if they can afford it.
