CIPP Survey 2019 LPC annual review of the National Minimum Wage

13 May 2019

To support the CIPP written response to the 2019 consultation the policy team have published a survey to collect views and opinions as to the:


  • Affordability of the National Living Wage (NLW) rate and effects of an increase to the ‘on target’ rate for April 2020 – currently around £8.67
  • Evidence of the impact of increases in the NLW since its introduction – including the April 2019 uprating – on workers, employers, the labour market and the economy
  • Evidence of how employers are seeking to improve productivity
  • Evidence on how the economic outlook is affected by the process of leaving the European Union

The LPC in consideration of all other rates which impact workers under 25 and apprentices are also seeking evidence to make recommendations on their traditional basis which is ‘helping raise the pay for as many low-paid workers as possible without damaging their employment prospects’.


The survey will close on 24 May 2019.


Thank you in advance for your time.
