1.    (a)      To direct the Committee for Employment & Social Security, whilst having regard to the requirements of the Minimum Wage (Guernsey) Law, 2009, to take fully into account when reviewing minimum wage rates that it is a policy objective of the States of Deliberation that the Young Persons' Minimum Wage Rate should be set at a rate equivalent to 90% (rounded to the nearest 5 pence) of the Adult Minimum Wage Rate by October 2024;

or, if Proposition 1(a) is not approved:

      (b)       To reaffirm the Resolution of the States made on 28th May 2010:

"To direct the Commerce and Employment Department [responsibility now rests with the Committee for Employment & Social Security], whilst having regard to the requirements of the Minimum Wage (Guernsey) Law, 2009, to take fully into account when reviewing minimum wage rates that it is a policy objective of the States of Deliberation that the Young Persons' Minimum Wage Rate and the Adult Minimum Wage Rate should be equalised as soon as possible.".

2.    If Proposition 1(a) is approved:

      (a) to approve the Minimum Wage (Prescribed Rates and Qualifications) (Guernsey) (Amendment) Regulations, 2022 (as set out in the Appendix to this Policy Letter), which pursuant to sections 1(3) and 3(1) of the Minimum Wage (Guernsey) Law, 2009, prescribe the hourly Minimum Wage Rates set out below with effect from 1st October 2022:

      (b) to rescind Resolution 5 on Article XI of Billet d'État No. XI of 2010.

3.    Only if Proposition 1(b) is approved:

      (a) to agree that, with effect from 1st October 2022: 

            i.  the rate of the Adult Minimum Wage shall be £9.55 per hour, and 
           ii.  the rate of the Young Persons' Minimum Wage shall be £9.25 per hour; and
