star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to building an economy that works for everyone. Through the National Minimum Wage and the National Living Wage, the Government is ensuring that the lowest paid within our society benefit from their contribution to the economy.</p><p> </p><p>In April 2019, an above-inflation increase in the 16-17 year old National Minimum Wage saw 38,000 young workers receive a pay rise. The rate increased by 3.6% to £4.35 per hour. Since 2015, the National Minimum Wage for the 16-17 age group has increased by 12.4%.</p><p> </p><p>In the first quarter of 2019, the unemployment rate for 16-17 year olds was 19.2%, down from 28% in 2015. As noted by the Low Pay Commission in its 2018 report, for 16-17 year olds, the priority remains their effective entry into the labour market, as they are the most vulnerable age group in the labour market due to their relative lack of experience.</p><p> </p><p>In 2018, approximately 2,900 workers in Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill were on one of the minimum wage rates.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department has not made an estimate of the number of rogue and incompetent builders in the construction sector. However, the Government has endorsed the TrustMark scheme to reduce the number of rogue and incompetent builders; and to identify local traders who have undergone independent checks for both trade competence and good trading practice. This scheme gives consumers increased confidence and ability to choose registered businesses including builders who adhere to and maintain high standards.</p><p> </p><p>TrustMark is actively involved with Trading Standards to provide further protection to consumers affected by rogue builders. Where a company has committed a criminal breach of consumer law, Trading Standards can prosecute in the criminal court and the court can impose a fine or imprisonment for a serious offence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>High risk vendors are not in our most sensitive networks. On telecoms CNI, the Communications Act 2003 places an obligation on Telecoms operators to ensure that they have 'appropriate measures' in place to manage the security and resilience of the network. Ofcom are responsible for ensuring that operators meet their obligations under the Communications Act. In addition, the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) was established in 2010 as part of a wide mitigation strategy to minimise risk to the UK telecoms critical national infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p>The HCSEC Oversight Board’s reports are publicly available and all telecommunications operators have access to its information. The latest Oversight Board report states that in 2018, several hundred vulnerabilities and issues were reported by HCSEC to UK operators. This information is expected to be fed into the operator’s corporate risk management processes. As I said in my Answer of 14 May, it is the responsibility of operators to ensure the security and resilience of their networks.</p>
