Dear Corpus Christi College, Cambridge,

I am writing to you to clarify some of the answers to the questions that I sent you in an FOI on 15 August 2018.

Please could you confirm that the figure you provided in answer to Question 1 does not include holiday pay and refers to the lowest hourly wage paid by the college to employees (including casual workers), over the age of 18, who are not trainees or apprentices.

If this is not the case please could you re-answer questions 3 and 4 in reference to these employees on the lowest hourly wage.

To be clear for example if a casual worker earns £8 per hour plus £1 per hour holiday pay, they should still be counted as a worker earning less than £8.75 per hour in questions 3 and 4.

I would really appreciate a prompt reply if at all possible.

Many thanks,

Joseph Cook
