This means that from 1 October 2011:
  • the adult rate will increase by 15p to £6.08 per hour
  • the rate for 18-20 year olds will rise by 6p to £4.98 per hour
  • the rate for 16-17 year olds will increase by 4p to £3.68 per hour
  • and the rate for apprentices will rise by 10p to £2.60 per hour
