Letter to MPs re National Living Wage

As part of the work programme of the Regional Employers’ Board, Cllr Kate Foale in her capacity as Chair of the Regional Employers’ Board of East Midlands Councils (EMC) has sent a letter to all East Midlands MPs to draw their attention to a very real funding concern that has arisen in light of the recent forecast of increases in the National Living Wage (NLW) in 2023 and 2024.

EMC supports initiatives to address low pay and is supportive of the National Living Wage, however we want to raise awareness of the implications of the policy to increase the NLW in line with two-thirds of median earnings by 2024.
