Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Apprentices: Pay ( 9 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: The Department has not made any assessment of the pay rates for this specific group. We are increasing the National Minimum Wage for people on apprenticeships by 3.0 per cent to £3.40 per hour in October 2016. Most apprentices receive more than the minimum; the median basic hourly pay rate is £6.31 for Level 2 and 3, and £9.68 for Level 4 and 5 Higher Apprentices. The Apprenticeship...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Apprentices: Taxation ( 9 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: Extra support will be provided for employers to take on disadvantaged young people, including 16-18 year olds, those aged 19-24 who have been in the care of the Local Authority, apprentices with additional learning needs, and apprentices who do not have the level of English and maths that is required to meet the minimum standard. Further guidance will be published in June 2016.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Apprentices ( 9 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: The government provides £1,500 per apprentice to smaller employers taking on new apprentices aged 16-24 through the Apprenticeships Grant for Employers. Additional support provided for employers includes funding training for 16-18 year old apprentices, those young people who are aged 19-24 who have been in the care of the Local Authority, apprentices with additional learning needs, and...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Education: Young People ( 9 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: Under Raising the Participation Age (RPA) requirements, all young people are required to continue in education or training until at least their 18th birthday. Local authorities are required to track the activity of young people in their area so they can identify those who are not participating, or who are at risk of not doing so, and support them accordingly. While this responsibility rests...

Age Discrimination: National Living Wage ( 8 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: Mr Davies, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. Whatever utterances you choose to make, I will still enjoy serving under your chairmanship. I congratulate the hon. Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch) on securing the debate and for setting out her argument as clearly as she did. Hers was one of the more reasonable and well-founded arguments made, but listening even to her speech...

Age Discrimination: National Living Wage ( 8 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: No. I heard a lot from the hon. Lady. It is especially important that young people are given early opportunities, which explains the original construction of the national minimum wage. Opposition Members surely recognise that the Low Pay Commission is an independent body charged with advising the Government on what is a responsible increase for the national minimum wage. The commission is...

Age Discrimination: National Living Wage ( 8 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: I am not going to give way. I listened to the hon. Lady intently and I am trying to cover all the points raised in a longish debate. It is critical to understand that although the national minimum wage bite—the percentage of the median wage—for 25 to 30-year-olds in 2015, before the national living wage came in, was only 59%, the bite for 21 to 24-year-olds was 78.7%. That is nearly 80%...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Construction: Productivity ( 8 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: Working with the Construction Leadership Council (CLC), the Government has identified skills, business models and innovation as the major sources of improved productivity in the sector. To promote increased investment in skills, an Apprenticeship Levy will be introduced in April 2017 on all companies with a pay bill above £3 million per annum. The CLC Review of the Construction Labour...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Trade Unions: Electronic Voting ( 7 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: The Trade Union Act establishes that the Government will commission an independent review of electronic balloting in trade union industrial action ballots within six months of the passing of the Act, which received Royal Assent on 4 May 2016. The Government is currently considering the next steps before the launch of the independent review and will provide further details in due course.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Apprentices: Taxation ( 7 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: In April 2016 we published a guide for employers on how they will pay the levy, access the digital system and pay for apprenticeships in future. We have asked employers to tell us what information they need next and have already committed to publishing provisional funding rates and further funding information in June.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Apprentices: Taxation ( 7 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: The apprenticeship levy is part of a number of reforms to boost the quantity and quality of apprenticeships supporting our commitment of 3 million new apprenticeships in England by 2020. The levy will put apprenticeship funding in the hands of employers and will encourage them to invest in their apprentices and take on more. Employer-led reforms are making it more attractive for businesses to...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Apprentices: Degrees ( 6 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: The Department does not currently publish forecasts for Apprenticeship starts by level. Information on the actual number of Apprenticeship starts reported to date, by individual level, is published as a supplementary table (first link) to a Statistical First Release (second link). https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachm...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Age: Discrimination ( 6 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: There have been age-related rates in the minimum wage structure since its introduction in 1999. Setting different minimum wage rates according to the age of the worker helps to protect the employment prospects of younger workers. The provisions in the National Minimum Wage Act 1998 mean that employers are able to pay different rates to workers of different ages in line with the NMW...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Productivity ( 6 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: While labour productivity statistics are estimated by sector, there are no official statistics estimating the productivity of workers by their age. The Low Pay Commission (LPC) recommends National Minimum Wage (NMW) rates to Government based on detailed consideration of the evidence on the economy (including productivity statistics), labour market and pay, as well as wide ranging...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Employment: Young People ( 6 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: Setting different minimum wage rates according to the age of the worker helps to protect the employment prospects of younger workers. While this has improved recently, those aged 21 to 24 have a marked difference in labour market dynamics when compared to older workers. This is evident through differences in their median earnings, employment rates and unemployment rates. The Low Pay...

Written Answers — Department for Education: University Technical Colleges ( 6 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: The Government is taking forward reforms to the skills system to ensure we have the technical skills that the economy needs. We will publish details of our plans in due course.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Skilled Workers: Recruitment ( 6 Meh 2016)

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Video Games: Internet ( 3 Meh 2016)

Nicholas Boles: The Government is committed to ensuring that consumers are properly protected and that children’s vulnerability and inexperience is not exploited by aggressive commercial practices. We welcomed the Office of Fair Trading’s (OFT) investigation into whether children have been unfairly encouraged to spend money in online games and apps, in breach of consumer laws. The OFT’s subsequent...
