LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s business minister said on Wednesday he welcomed a decision by Uber to give its more than 70,000 British drivers entitlements such as the minimum wage after the Silicon Valley-based company lost a Supreme Court case on worker rights.

“(It’s) absolutely to be welcomed,” Kwasi Kwarteng told Sky News.
