Abolition of Agricultural Wages Board
Implementation date: 25 June 2013
The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 (PDF format, 1MB) (on the UK legislation website) abolishes the Agricultural Wages Board, an independent body that determines the minimum wage for workers employed in agriculture in England and Wales and has discretionary powers to regulate other terms and conditions of employment. The Agricultural Wage (England and Wales) Order 2012 remains in place until 1 October 2013. The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 (Commencement No.1, Transitional Provisions and Savings) Order 2013 (SI 2013/1455), which brings into force the provision that provides for the repeal, can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
