To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to the Answer of 9 September 2016 to Question 44820, how much of the £1.74 million of minimum wage arrears owed by TSS Security Ltd and identified in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s press release of 5 February 2016 has been paid to the workers in question.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) do not divulge information relating to an individual or company for reasons of confidentiality. HMRC always take action to ensure workers receive what they are entitled to.
Where arrears are identified HMRC complete assurance checks to ensure employers have repaid the arrears owed to workers. If employers do not repay arrears to workers HMRC will pursue civil recovery of arrears through the courts.
