To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what assessment he has made of the equity for workers of the outcomes achieved by the pay review bodies that determine public sector pay.
Answer (Chris Skidmore)
The remit of the Pay Review Bodies continues to be to provide evidence based advice on pay. We will consider their recommendations when they report from Spring 2018. Our assessment of public sector pay shows that wages in the public sector are roughly equivalent to those in the private sector, and, in addition, public sector workers benefit from more generous pensions.
