HC Deb 04 July 1997 vol 297 c293W
Mr. Norman

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on his Departments estimates of the impact of different levels of a minimum wage on tax yields. [3709]

Dawn Primarolo

It is not possible to say what the impact of the minimum wage on tax yields will he without knowing the level it will be set at. This is a matter for the Low Pay Commission to advise the Government on, taking into account the wider effect on the economy.
