Enterprise Bill — Clause 41 — Cap on Public Sector Payments on Leaving Employment — Regular Reviews — Adjustments in Line with Inflation and Earnings — 8 Mar 2016 at 15:49

The majority of MPs taking part in this vote opposed regular reviews of the proposed cap on payments to public sector workers leaving employment and adjusting the cap in line with inflation and earnings.

MPs were considering the Enterprise Bill[1].

The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment: 18, page 56, line 18, at end insert—
  • ‘(1A) The restriction placed on public sector exit payments must be reviewed at regular intervals and, where necessary, be adjusted in line with inflation and earnings growth.’.

An explanatory statement accompanying the amendment stated:

  • This amendment would ensure that the level that the restriction on public sector exit payments is set will be linked to inflation and earnings growth.

Had it not been rejected the amendment would have modified Clause 41[2] of the Bill titled Restriction on public sector exit payments.
