National Minimum Wage Rises for October 2013
The national minimum wage (NMW) will increase by 12p to £6.31 from October 2013, the Government has announced today.

Business secretary Vince Cable confirmed he has accepted the independent Low Pay Commission (LPC) recommendations for this year's adult and youth NMW rates.

However, the Government has gone against recommendations by the LPC which recommended freezing the wage for apprentices because it had concerns about the level of compliance with the apprentice rate, and has increased those too.

The following rates will come into effect on 1 October 2013:

•The adult rate will increase by 12p to £6.31 an hour
•The rate for 18-20 year olds will increase by 5p to £5.03 an hour
•The rate for 16-17 year olds will increase by 4p to £3.72 an hour
•The apprentice rate will increase by 3p to £2.68 an hour

•Where applicable, the accommodation offset increases from the current £4.82 to £4.91
