What rate of the national minimum wage is payable when 1 April falls within a worker's pay reference period?

The rates of the national minimum wage generally increase on 1 April each year. Regulation 4B of the National Minimum Wage Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/621) states that the hourly rate at which a worker is entitled to be remunerated in respect of any pay reference period is the one that applies to the worker on the first day of that period. This means that where a pay reference period began before 1 April, the old rate of the national minimum wage will be the one to which the worker is entitled for that reference period.
