Commenting on the Government’s announcement that it will be clamping down on firms who do not pay the minimum wage David Frost, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said:

 “We fully support the Government’s actions in clamping down on rogue businesses who seek to undercut the minimum wage. 

 “Firms who flout minimum wage regulations are providing unfair competition for the vast majority of employers who do not break the law and consequently have to charge higher rates.”
