Give with one hand, take with the other: Lifting the public-sector pay cap spells trouble for the chancellor

Print section Print Rubric:  Lifting the pay cap eases political pressure but piles on the economic sort Print Headline:  A problem postponed Print Fly Title:  Public-sector pay UK Only Article:  standard article Issue:  Closing in on cancer Fly Title:  Give with one hand, take with the other Main image:  20170916_brp503.jpg IT WAS one of Britain’s signature austerity policies. Since 2011 pay increases for most public-sector workers have been capped at 1% a year at most. But on September 12th the government announced that prison staff and police officers would receive a pay rise of around double that this year. Now that the pay cap has been lifted for some public servants, others are expecting a pay rise too. That creates a headache for Philip Hammond, the chancellor, who has a budget looming in the autumn. For months Mr Hammond has been under pressure to lift ...

Hammond says rejects 'protectionist' EU agendas after Brexit

Britain will reject "protectionist" agendas from the European Union in favour of "forward-leaning" proposals when it comes to supervising cross-border financial markets after Brexit, UK finance minister Philip Hammond said on Wednesday. Britain, the bloc's biggest financial centre, acknowledged there are legitimate concerns among its European partners about the oversight and supervision of financial markets after the UK leaves the EU in March 2019, Hammond said.

Hammond eases public sector pay cap, but the squeeze goes on

The chancellor insisted police and prison officers’ rises will come from existing budgets – and they are well below inflationPhilip Hammond’s re-emergence as a power in the cabinet can be seen clearly as the battle rages inside government over the thorny question of public sector pay.There may have been a green light from No 10 to rip up the current cap and give the police and prison officers a 1% rise plus a 1% bonus for 2017-18, but the Treasury has made sure the bonus is not part of workers’ consolidated, pensionable pay and is funded from within existing budgets.

Hammond says he wants EU transition that looks 'a lot like the status quo' - Politics live

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including Jeremy Corbyn’s speech to the TUC and Philip Hammond’s evidence to a Lords committeeHammond’s evidence to Lords committee - Summary 5.59pm BST Here are the main points from Philip Hammond’s evidence to the Lords economic affairs committee.There is general agreement that it would not make sense to ask business to face two sets of changes and that implies that a transition or interim period would need to look a lot like the status quo, otherwise businesses will be making one set of changes at the beginning of the interim period and another set towards the end of it.Anyone who’s visited Dover will know that Dover operates as a flow-through port and volumes of trade at Dover could not accommodated if goods had to be held for inspection even, I suspect, if they were held for minutes, it would still impede the operation of the port.Roll-on, roll-off traffic at Dover is predicated on trucks rolling off a ferry immediately, out of the port and the ferry reloading and departing pretty rapidly – Ryanair style turnaround times.When we leave the European Union, we will leave the single market and the customs union as a matter of fact. What we would hope to be able to do is negotiate an arrangement with the European Union that would allow us to operate across borders between the UK and the EU, our trade in goods and services, in much the way we do today.The obvious impediment to such an arrangement is the desire to conclude third party trade agreements with other countries. We have been clear during such a period we would want to be able negotiate with third countries but we would not expect to be able to implement them. That clears the way to have a harmonised customs agreement.In terms of level of engagement with our nearest neighbours at the customs service level, that has been limited and it has been limited because the view of many of our neighbours is that, until such time as the commission, or the council of ministers, has declared sufficient progress, they are not authorised to engage with us on post-exit planning and post-exit arrangements.We have had less engagement than we would like with our customs counterparts with our immediate neighbours both at a technical level and to discuss possible deal scenario technical challenges and no deal scenario technical challenges.I would advise the committee to listen to what the home secretary said, rather than what some document that somebody has dug out from somewhere, which I certainly don’t recognise as our current state of thinking, purports to say. I don’t think it would be helpful to look only at the financing side of the equation. I think we need to look more broadly at the range of products offered to students, the way in which we offer them, the information that we provide to students to enable them to make value for money assessments about what they are buying and what it is going to cost them. And I think our focus should be satisfying ourselves that as government, as a responsible body, what we are offering, the package in the round that we are offering to would-be students, represents a value-for-money offer. There are very significant areas of government activity which involve relatively low level decision making which will be highly susceptible to the application of artificial intelligence, probably over a relatively short period of time, which does present the tantalising possibility of being able to drive some real productivity enhancement in the delivery of government processes. 5.01pm BST The Scottish Tories have offered to help end the deadlock between the Scottish and UK governments over Brexit after ministers in Edinburgh again refused to authorise crucial Brexit legislation.In an unexpected change of tone at Holyrood, the Tories said they wanted to act as an honest broker between the two governments after weeks of verbal sparring over the types of new powers would come to Scotland after Brexit.Brexit isn’t politics as normal. If there’s a genuine concern [in the Scottish government] matched by equally genuine resolve to address and overcome this, then the Scottish Conservatives here at Holyrood will play our part.

Refusal to put a concrete figure on the cost of Brexit is close to criminal negligence | Paul Mason

The chancellor may continue to predict the long-term direction of the public finances as if Brexit were not happening – but it is unsustainable and harms democracyOver the summer the government replaced its strategy of abstract bluster over Brexit with one of concrete bluster. But there is one area in which the Brexit debate is still being conducted in an air of studied unreality: the fiscal cost.Before the referendum, the Treasury predicted a £39bn short-term hike in government borrowing in the case of a leave victory, and the collapse of GDP by 7.5% in the case of hard Brexit. But it has now gone quiet. Continue reading...

If only all we middle-aged Brits had Philip Hammond’s millions | Barbara Ellen

Does the chancellor actually believe that everyone his age has paid off their mortgage and got a fabulous pension?Philip Hammond was not, as accused, “boasting” that he doesn’t have the same money troubles as the younger generation. Even if these comments did unfortunately coincide with a nurses’ march about low pay, Hammond, worth a reputed eight million, wasn’t “boasting”, but being unusually open about not having the slightest clue about the difficulties facing ordinary people.During the address to the Conservative backbench 1922 Committee, Hammond, it’s reported, was trying to empathise with the problems facing young people. “Look at us, no mortgage, everybody with a pension and never had more money in the current account,” he said, according to a Tory MP present. (Big warning here – there are plenty of Tory MPs eager to dish on Hammond.) He then asked colleagues to submit helpful ideas. Whether this sudden interest in youth was out of the goodness of Hammond’s heart or in response to the last election, where student-aged voters seemed more likely to commit hara-kiri during rag week than vote Tory, must remain an eternal mystery.

Government prepares clampdown on fixed-odds betting machines

Treasury stalling over limits to stakes on terminals that can take £18,000 every hourThe government has signalled that it is preparing to clamp down on fixed odds betting terminals (FOBTs) – the gambling machines described as the “crack cocaine” of the betting world. But the extent to which the machines will be controlled is dividing the Treasury and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.The move is indicated in a letter, seen by the Observer, from the chancellor, Philip Hammond, to the Bishop of St Albans, who has been leading Church of England criticism of the betting industry’s use of the machines. The church believes the machines have a “devastating” impact on many of those who play them and have been responsible for a rising tide of violence in some communities. Continue reading...
