Public servants in poorer areas to get 'pay freeze'

Workers in poorer parts of Britain should have their pay frozen until it falls in line with the private sector, Chancellor George Osborne is expected to announce in Wednesday's Budget.


He is due to reveal plans to scrap national pay rates for workers such as teachers, nurses and civil servants.


The Treasury says public sector wages in England and Wales are, on average, 8% higher than in the private sector.


Unions have criticised the plans, which they say will drive down regional pay.


The move would mean local factors, such as the cost of living and private sector pay rates, would now be taken into account.


It means a teacher working in Sunderland would have a different pay packet to a colleague in Surrey.


Local pay rates for teaching and hospital staff could begin next year.
