low pay commission

The Low Pay Commission (LPC) whose purpose is to provide advice to the Government on matters relating to the National Minimum Wage (NMW) will be visiting areas across the UK to gather evidence on the National Minimum Wage and low pay.

The Commission would like to meet a number of people affected by low pay; to hear first-hand what impact the National Minimum Wage is having in the area. Any information received will be treated in confidence.

If you would like to meet LPC Commissioners or would like further information, please get in touch with Roz Hands: rosalind.hands@lowpay.gov.uk; Tel 020 7271 0451 to arrange a convenient time and location.

This essential evidence on low pay across different areas and employment sectors in the UK will help inform our wage rate recommendations to Government.
