Ministry of Justice: Cleaning Services

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN 28610, tabled on 25 February 2016

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what the rate of pay is for cleaners in his Department.

Answered on

4 March 2016

Cleaning services within the Ministry of Justice are typically undertaken by outsourced providers. Cleaners working within Ministry of Justice sites are therefore employed directly by these outsourced providers or their subcontractors and/or agencies.

Rates of pay for cleaners are determined by their respective employers and not held by the Ministry of Justice. All employers are obligated to pay at least the National Minimum Wage and the new National Living Wage from April 2016.
