Recent correspondence indicates that an accommodation has been reached with the parties in the hotel sector on terms that are agreeable to both sides. As the Deputy will be aware, the case has been adjourned and the parties are at liberty to re-enter it.

We have to be very careful with this. It is important to ensure that people have a decent wage. The Low Pay Commission was set up to look at that. The hospitality sector has been targeted in respect of low pay. As far as I am concerned, we will review this when the Low Pay Commission produces its report.
