Asked whether the PM thought he could live on 53 per week, the PMS said that the PM believed the benefit levels were fair. Welfare reform was ensuring work paid and unemployed people were supported back into work. Benefits were designed to support people back into work and were not for the long term. Asked whether the Government was looking at changing the minimum wage level, the PMS said that the Low Pay Commission were looking at the appropriate level and that the Department for Business would respond, but that it was important the the NMW worked and supported people.
