wage could lead to a shortage of people willing to work
in the fields of Lincolnshire. That's according to a major producer
of vegetables in the county. From April, workers over 25

some farmers are warning that people will turn their back

narrows - one employer says his workers will have
less incentive to do We need to increase rates to keep
the differential because we want to remain an attractive place to work

From April - low paid workers will see an extra 30p per hour
In Lincoln, this coffee shop has plans to increase trade,

afford it and I don't think it's fair to think that it's just across
the board everybody should just pay it, but I certainly think if you can
afford that it is the right thing to do and it'll only makes for better
engaged staff and keep them. It's expected minimum hourly rates
will reach ?9 by 2020 - whilst thousands of workers
will benefit - it's feared it could lead to a shortfall
of those willing to work An East Yorkshire MP has defended
proposed changes to the way education is funded amid claims that
many schools could be worse-off. Some Conservative MPs say
they won't support changes to the school funding formula,
which one study claimed could see the average secondary school lose
the equivalent of six teachers. But the Beverley and Holderness MP,
Graham Stuart insists many At a time of constraint,
it's very difficult to do redistribution
but that is going ahead
and I certainly expect the government to go
through with that, ensuring those areas that
have historically been underfunded My area, one of the lowest funded

but we are in for a bit of a shock next week as we will have a blast of
Arctic air across the UK making it feel much cooler than it has of late
with wintry showers and a return to overnight frosts for a while. The
pressure chart shows more weather fronts pushing into many central and
southern parts of the country this evening and overnight it will turn
