To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to his Answer of 13 April 2017 to Question 70785, what plans he has to fill the vacancies in HMRC Minimum Wage Compliance Unit; and if he will make a statement.
26 June 2017
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) enforce the National Minimum Wage (NMW) in line with the law and policy set out by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The Government is determined that everyone who is entitled to the NMW receives it.
All HMRC vacancies for NMW staff are advertised through civil service jobs and recruited in line with the civil service resourcing policy. HMRC makes full use of the budget allocation it receives from BEIS for current and future NMW recruitment. No announcements are planned in relation to this.
