Public Pay Freeze

Asked if Sir Alan Budd’s words at the Treasury Select Committee this morning were a rebuke, the PMS said he was yet to read Sir Alan Budd’s words, but the Prime Minister made clear at PMQs that if you had a fixed budget and you paid people less, then you could employ more people.

Put that if you sacked more people you would save more money, the PMS said that it was important to remember that we were talking about projections. There was a spending review that would conclude in October, which would fix budgets for individual departments. As part of that process departments would make plans about how many people they needed to employ.
