To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what the rate of pay is for cleaners in her Department.
4 March 2016
The hourly rate of pay for cleaners working in buildings managed by the Department for Education is between £7.85 and £9.15 depending on location and duration of tenure.
The Government Equality Office is based within buildings managed by the Department for Education, and therefore the same rates apply.
From 1 April 2016, the rate of pay will be increased to the 2016 Living Wage Foundation rates.
