Low Pay Commission Consultation - Closing 7th of July 2017

The Low Pay Commission is the independent body that monitors the impact of the minimum wage and advises Government on its level. We are seeking evidence of the impact of the most recent increases to inform thinking about future upratings with initial views sought by 7 July.

This consultation is relevant to organisations and individuals that are affected by the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage rates, for example:

  • employees on low wages
  • employers of low-paid workers, particularly those in low-paying sectors such as retail, hospitality, social care, cleaning and hairdressing
  • young people and apprentices
  • representative bodies of the above groups
  • other organisations such as charities and voluntary organisations with an interest in the National Minimum Wage training providers
