Unpaid Work Experience (Prohibition) (No. 2) Bill

Explanatory Notes

Financial implications of the Bill

16 The Bill does not require a Money Resolution. The 1998 Act already grants the Secretary of State powers to make regulations to include or exclude certain groups from the NMW. The Bill would require any publicly-funded body which currently provides work experience on an unpaid basis for periods exceeding four weeks to instead pay the relevant rate of the NMW. It does not, however, affect the publicly-funded body any differently to the general law.

17 The Bill does not require a Ways and Means Resolution because it does not authorise new taxation or similar charges on the people.
