What we do

The Low Pay Commission (LPC) is an independent body that advises the government about the National Minimum Wage. We submit a report to the government each February making recommendations on the future level of the minimum wage, and related matters.

LPC is an advisory non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills.
