Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Andrew Jones: The hon. Gentleman is perhaps not absolutely correct about the process. That also predates my time in the House and goes back to the expenses crisis in 2007 and 2008. Any hon. Members who have been here a bit longer are welcome to jump in, but I think that at that point, Parliament basically gave all responsibility for its pay rises to an independent body. Since then, I do not think that it...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Andrew Jones: Nothing the hon. Gentleman said about what I have said is remotely accurate—I have not said that public sector workers should not be paid a decent salary—so I am afraid I do not accept at all the point he makes. It is right that Secretaries of State have the responsibility to determine the right pay award for their workforces. That is because across the public services, each...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Andrew Jones: I draw the hon. Lady’s attention to the interview given by the shadow Chancellor yesterday in which he said that public sector pay reviews were always subject to negotiation. Perhaps he needs to have a conversation internally first. Before any decision on pay is made, there is indeed a well-established process for the consideration of pay across the public sector. For local government...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Andrew Jones: I accept that—I was actually quoting the shadow Chancellor. Let me press on. The pay review bodies will consider evidence from stakeholders, including employers, Governments and unions, and they will make their recommendations in spring and summer next year. Secretaries of State will use the recommendations to inform the final pay awards in the normal way. The PRBs’...

Andrew Jones: I have given way already to the hon. Gentleman, so I will give way to the hon. Lady.

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Andrew Jones: I was not watching the clock, so thank you, Mr Stringer. I recognise that starting salaries and debt are clearly related for people making choices, but our NHS provides a magnificent career with long-term security and pay progression. The current average salary for a nurse is £27,635, which is very near the national average salary. Nursing presents a great career. I mentioned earlier...
