Unpaid work trials

13 Mar 2018, 14:30 - 15:30

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences on unpaid work trials with Stewart Malcolm McDonald MP.

Stewart McDonald gathered views on Money Saving Expert and the Student Room before participating in a digital debate on Facebook on 13 January 2018 ahead of the Second Reading of his Unpaid Work Trials (Prohibition) Bill.

Speaking in the debate, Stewart said:

"I did a Facebook Live broadcast with House of Commons digital officials earlier this week, and I gave lots of examples from members of the public who have gone through such things. People rely ​on the National Minimum Wage Act 1998, and the low paid rely on it more than any other group in society, so it needs to be enforced with rigour."

You can watch the debate on Parliament TV or read the Hansard report.
