TWO Low Pay Commissioners will visit Blackburn tomorrow on a fact-finding mission about the National Minimum Wage.

It is one of a number of visits the Low Pay Commission has made around the country this year to gather information on how the minimum wage is operating.

The Commission is a statutory body that advises the Government on the National Minimum Wage.

John Hannett and Professor Steve Machin will meet a number of representatives in Blackburn to hear first hand what impact the National Minimum Wage is having on businesses and workers.

Mr Hannett said: “Hearing directly from those affected by the National Minimum Wage is an important part of the Commission’s work and informs our recommendations to the Government.”
