Low Pay

Asked if the Prime Minister was sympathetic to the case for raising low pay, the PMS replied that we had policy mechanisms in place in order to deal with the issue of low pay and to encourage more people into work. We introduced the minimum wage and tax credits, and of course we continued to keep both the level of the minimum wage and the level support of tax credits reviewed regularly.

Put that people were complaining that the super rich on city bonuses were escaping the tax regime, the PMS replied that we had introduced proposals in relation to non-doms, for example, which would give non-doms the incentive to come into the UK tax system or pay a charge once they had been here for more than seven years.
