A statement to Plenary on the issue of regional pay on 8 May 2012
Date of decision / Dyddiad y penderfyniad:
8 May 2012
Statement of information / Datganiad gwybodaeth:
The Chancellor (and other UK Government Ministers) has expressed support for the principle that pay in the public sector should vary more across the UK to reflect market circumstances. This has been variously referred to as “regional pay”, “local market pay” and “market facing pay.”
The Chancellor has written to the Pay Review Bodies, asking them to recommend ways in which “local market pay” can be promoted, and the Office for Manpower Economics (OME), which assembles and review evidence for the bodies, has issued a call for evidence.
The Welsh Government has been invited to provide evidence to inform the Pay Review Bodies’ consideration of the scope for introducing arrangements for determining public sector pay in ways that are more responsive to local market circumstances.
HM Treasury has already submitted evidence which contains evidence on Wales which the Welsh Government regards as incomplete, and in places, flawed. This can be accessed at the OME website.
The Minister for Finance and Leader of the House will make an oral statement on 8 May 2012 to plenary based on evidence from the Welsh Government, assembled on behalf of the Welsh Government’s Chief Economist. The evidence the Welsh Government will be submitting for consideration by the Pay Review Bodies will also be published following the oral statement.
