HC Deb 04 November 1999 vol 337 c274W
13. Mr. Wray

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on the effects of his Department's policies on families with low incomes in the last two years. [95835]

Mr. Byers

This Government believe that rewarding work is a key aspect of our agenda of modernisation and reform. The national minimum wage, coupled with the introduction of the working families tax credit, will make work pay for hard-working parents.
