Chris Philp – BBC News 24 – Public sector wage increase


Well the important point is that it is
an above inflation pay rise, people can be happy about that, and of course it’s
combined with the very big increase in the personal allowance – under the
Conservatives that’s gone up from six-and-a-half thousand to twelve and a
half thousand, meaning every single person both public and private sector
has over a thousand pounds more in their pocket after the effect of tax, so I
think the public sector pay increase combined with that effectively tax cut
means people can be happy yes.
