Anna Turley – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Cabinet Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Anna Turley on 2015-11-13.

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what assessment he has made of the effect of raising the minimum wage on the capacity of charities to deliver public services.

Mr Rob Wilson

The National Living Wage will benefit low paid workers across all sectors, including charity workers delivering public services on behalf of the state.

Government is taking steps to support employers with the transition. For example, the employer National Insurance Bill for businesses and charities will be cut by £1000 from April 2016.
