From The BBC:
Thousands of top-earning public sector workers, including judges, GPs, NHS managers and senior civil servants, are to have their pay frozen in 2010/11.The Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB) said there was “no justification for general pay increases”. It did propose rises for some NHS managers and civil servants, but they were rejected by ministers. Prime Minister Gordon Brown said the “tough approach” to public sector pay would save £3 billion by 2013/14. The SSRB is independent of the government, but its recommendations are not binding and ministers will have the final say.
In a speech on Wednesday, the prime minister said: “Part of our tough approach to spending will be our tough approach to pay in the public sector. “So today I can say that after the reports of the review bodies we will also freeze the salaries of senior staff in the civil service, senior staff in the military, the judiciary, senior managers in the health service and the pay of consultants, GPs and dentists.”…
