NEWS STORY : National Living Wage to Rise to Over 11% Next Year


Jeremy Hunt, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, has said that the National Living Wage will rise to at least £11 next year. In a press release issued before the Conservative Party’s annual conference in Manchester, Hunt is expected to say that:

“At the moment it is £10.42 and hour and we are waiting for the Low Pay Commission to confirm its recommendation for next year. But I confirm today, whatever that recommendation, we will increase it next year to at least £11 an hour. A pay rise for over 2 million workers.”
