star this property answer text <p>I refer the noble Lord to the answer I gave to question UIN <a href="http://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Lords/2017-07-17/HL893/" target="_blank">HL893</a> that states that the government has not made an estimate of the social and economic consequences of restricting zero hours contracts to students and pensioners.</p><p> </p><p>The government has not assessed the social and economic consequences of restricting zero hours contracts to students and pensioners. The Matthew Taylor review found that zero hours contracts have a part to play in a modern, flexible labour market and benefit those who cannot or do not want to work in a regular contract.</p><p> </p><p>However, this government shares the concerns regarding flexible work arrangements. That is why in October 2016 my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister asked Matthew Taylor to carry out an independent review to consider employment practices and whether they need to change to keep pace with modern business models. We are now considering the report and will respond in full later in the year.</p>
