LONDON (Reuters) – British finance minister Rishi Sunak will unfreeze public sector pay when he presents his budget in two days’ time, the finance ministry said on Monday.
The fact he would do this was first reported by the Sun newspaper on Sunday.
The size of the pay rise will depend on recommendations from pay review bodies that set wages for frontline workers, the finance ministry said in the 17th budget announcement to be released in advance of Sunak’s statement on Wednesday.
