answer text <p>The Industrial Strategy is our long-term plan to boost productivity by backing businesses to create high-quality, well paid jobs throughout the United Kingdom, with investment in skills, industries and infrastructure. The Government has to date awarded over £50m to support businesses in Yorkshire and the Humber through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF), which brings together world-class UK research with business investment to develop the technologies that will transform existing industries and create entirely new ones. For example, we are investing in ITM Power (Trading) Ltd in Sheffield to demonstrate the feasibility of a hydrogen economy in remote areas.</p><p>Also, since its launch in 2012, the Start-Up Loans programme, part of the British Business Bank, has delivered more than 5,200 loans, totalling £42.690m in Yorkshire and the Humber.</p><p>The Government is also investing over £1.3 billion through Yorkshire and Humber Local Enterprise Partnership Growth Deals and has established Enterprise Zones across the region, which are both supporting the creation of higher skilled jobs such as Siemens’ offshore wind blade factory in Hull and at the Humber Enterprise Park in Brough.</p>

answer text <p>Workers on offshore windfarms are entitled to the same protections as UK workers, including National Minimum Wage for all their work on the installation, construction and maintenance of the windfarms regardless of nationality or where they ordinarily work.</p><p> </p><p>Workers on UK registered ships are entitled to National Minimum Wage for all their work on the ship wherever it is located, unless they work entirely outside the UK or are not ordinarily resident in the UK. BEIS and the DfT are working together to increase the scope of National Minimum Wage entitlement from those seafarers in internal waters to those working in the territorial sea, an area that extends up to 12 nautical miles from the mean low-water line.</p><p> </p><p>This Government takes minimum wage enforcement seriously and is committed to ensuring all employers pay their workers correctly. We continue to invest heavily in minimum wage enforcement, increasing the budget to over £26 million for 2018/19, up from £13 million in 2015/16. In addition to following up on every worker complaint received, HMRC undertake proactive investigations and conduct awareness raising activities amongst both employers and workers. Last year, HMRC identified record arrears of £15.6 million, for over 200,000 workers.</p>
