Question to the HM Treasury:

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 4 December 2017 to Question 116646, on Public Sector: Redundancy Pay, what the matters are for which it was planned a 12 week consultation would take place in the first quarter of 2018; and whether there has been any change in what those matters are since December 2017.

Answered by Elizabeth Truss - Minister for Women and Equalities

The Government remains committed to ending six figure pay outs in the public sector. The regulations to implement the exit payment cap were drafted as part of the passage of the Enterprise Act 2016. Since that time, they have undergone further iteration and will be completed following the outcome of the consultation and then laid in Parliament. It is not possible to forecast the hours required to reflect the degree of changes which may be made to the draft regulations following the outcome of the consultation, which will necessarily depend on consultees views and the Government’s response to that consultation. The consultation will seek views on the terms of the draft secondary legislation, including the detailed design of the exit payment cap and the list of bodies to which the cap will apply.
