Opposition Day — Regional Pay in the Public Sector — 20 Jun 2012 at 18:58

John Baron MP, Basildon and Billericay voted in favour of seeking advice on regional pay in the public sector and waiting for that advice before making proposals.

The majority of MPs voted in favour of seeking advice on regional pay in the public sector and waiting for that advice before making proposals.

The text of the motion as approved was:

  • That this house
  • notes the importance of recruiting, retaining and motivating staff and keeping tight control of public spending;
  • further notes that the then Chancellor of the Exchequer, the right hon. Member for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath, first proposed a fair framework for local and regional flexibility for pay in his statement to the House of 9 June 2003;
  • supports the Government in asking the widely respected independent pay review bodies to consider how public sector pay can be made more responsive to local labour markets; and
  • believes the Government is correct in awaiting the conclusions of those deliberations before making a decision on bringing forward proposals in respect of public sector pay
