A group of MPs are calling for a debate on the national living wage to “close loopholes” that are against the “spirit” of the law and are being used by some businesses.

Conservative and Labour MPs are looking to debate the issue on 4 November. The MPs want to discuss some retailers cutting benefits for workers as a result of the rise in salary costs.

The national living wage came into effect in April this year and is set to rise to £9 by 2020.
