S5W-10089: Neil Findlay (Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 30 June 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how much public sector pay will increase by after it ends the public sector pay cap.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 4 August 2017

On 29 June 2017 I confirmed that the current public sector pay cap is unsustainable and I will be bringing the 1% cap to an end.

Our 2018-19 Public Sector Pay Policy will be published alongside the Draft Budget 2018-19 later this year and will strike a balance between affordability and the cost of living.
