Spending Round 2019 delivered the fastest planned increase in day-to-day departmental spending in 15 years. Resource spending is set to rise by 4.1% in real terms from 2019-20 to 2020-21.
As usual, departments are responsible for managing changes to pay. Where this policy change might have cost implications in years beyond 2020-21, these should be incorporated into departments’ workforce strategies and will be considered at the Spending Review in 2020 alongside other bids and pressures in their budgets.
