The Royal Household should pay the Living Wage

A recent advertisement for a cleaner at Buckingham Palace was paying a rate of just £6.93 an hour. In contrast, the widely-recognised London Living Wage rate is £8.80 an hour. As an example to the nation, the Royal Household (which employs 1,200 people in a variety of occupations) should become a Living Wage employer. Ministers, on behalf of the public, should urge palace officials to make this happen immediately.
