Ferries: Minimum Wage: Written question 278971

Wed, 31 Jul 2019

In response to a written question on the potential merits of bringing forward legislative proposals to require UK registered ferry operators to pay the minimum wage to all employees, the Department for Transport states it has proposed, subject to Parliamentary time, amending legislation be made in autumn 2019 that will extend the minimum wage to all seafarers working domestically in the UK and this will include all ferries that are working domestic routes in the UK. The amending legislation will be subject to the affirmative process and it is expected to enter into force in April 2020.
