Have your say on min­i­mum wage

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Advertiser Farming -

MEM­BERS are in­vited to con­trib­ute to the NFU’s re­sponse to the Low Pay Com­mis­sion’s con­sul­ta­tion on the National Min­i­mum and Living Wage rates for 2018.

The com­mis­sion is the in­de­pen­dent body that mon­i­tors the im­pact of the min­i­mum wage.

Each year it is­sues a con­sul­ta­tion to pro­vide rec­om­men­da­tions to gov­ern­ment. This year’s con­sul­ta­tion closes on July 7.

The NFU is par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in hear­ing mem­bers’ thoughts on:

What im­pact has the National Living Wage had for you since 2016?

What would be the fu­ture im­pact of a National Living Wage rate of £7.80– £7.91?

To what ex­tent are you us­ing the National Min­i­mum Wage (21–24) rate of £7.05?

What im­pact has the Ap­pren­tice­ship Levy had on your busi­ness?

What are your views on the ac­com­mo­da­tion off­set rate of £6.40 per day? What dif­fer­ence, if any, have faster in­creases in the off­set rate since 2013 made to the pro­vi­sion of ac­com­mo­da­tion?

Please email your com­ments to NFU econ­o­mist Anand Dossa at Anand. Dossa@nfu.org.uk.

We would also urge mem­bers to write to the Low Pay Com­mis­sion to ex­plain the im­pact the Living Wage is hav­ing and the im­pact of fu­ture rises.

You should send your com­ments to lpc@low­pay.gov.uk, please also copy your email to Anand. Dossa@nfu.org.uk

How are the min­i­mum wage rules af­fect­ing your busi­ness?
