Whilst Department for Transport lead on this policy, BEIS have overall policy ownership of National Minimum Wage. I intend to meet with the new Minister shortly and my officials are regularly liaising with BEIS officials to ensure smooth progression of this policy. The recommendations will be published following the conclusion of those discussions.
