Austerity shouldn't be sacrificed to increase public sector pay - coverage of CPS report

Guido Fawkes today, 21 July 2017, urged MPs “flirting with Torbynism” to read the latest CPS report, ‘Abandoning Austerity is No Solution‘.

“The report finds that the only responsible ways to increase public sector wages would be to re-gear spending priorities, for example by making savings in the international aid budget or ring-fenced pensioner benefits. It also suggests further extending regional pay structures (apart from London weightings, there are no other areas of England where huge differentials in cost of living are matched by pay). Take note Torbynistas…”


The report was also covered by Local Gov and Insider.
