unstar this property answer text <p>The Government takes the enforcement of National Minimum Wage very seriously. Any worker who believes that they are being paid below the minimum wage should make a complaint to the Pay &amp; Work Rights Helpline (PWRH) on 0800 917 2368.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>HMRC review every complaint referred to them by the PWRH and, in addition, collate and analyse data from various sources to identify employers more likely not to be paying National Minimum Wage and undertake targeted enforcement against those employers.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>However, some complaints may not lead to the commencement of an investigation. This might be due to incomplete information being provided, or the worker subsequently wishing to withdraw their complaint. Similarly, multiple complaints about the same employer would only be recorded under one investigation. Therefore HMRC do not record statistics by complaints received, but by investigations completed.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>I therefore refer my honourable friend to the answer provided to him on 17 October 2014; UIN 209191.</p><p> </p>

In December, the government announced an ambitious programme of reform across the oil and gas tax regime, including the introduction of a new single investment allowance to support investment on the UKCS and an immediate cut to the rate of the Supplementary Charge, which is already in effect.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Investment Allowance was identified by the industry as their number one priority and would incentivise drilling work, a formal consultation on this measure is underway.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Although these fiscal measures will encourage activity and protect jobs, our response has not been limited to the use of the tax system. The Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, the Rt Hon Edward Davey MP, has tasked Andy Samuel, the CEO of the newly formed OGA, to lead an urgent commission, working with industry to identify what further measures might be taken by the government and industry. The report outlining the conclusions of this work shall be presented by the end of February.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Additionally, the BIS led joint oil and gas Industrial Strategy outlines key considerations regarding training and maintaining talent within the industry, to sustain and promote growth within the supply chain.</p><p> </p>
