Regional pay boards not part of ‘central costings’, says Liz Truss

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Regional pay boards not part of ‘central costings’, says Liz Truss” – below is their description.

Liz Truss has said regional pay boards were not part of her central costings during a Conservative party hustings in Cardiff. The foreign secretary was forced into a U-turn earlier this week on a controversial policy that would have seen public sector workers outside London potentially face pay cuts relative to costs of living in their regions. Pressed to address where she would plug the £8.8bn gap that the policy would have filled, Truss said the policy was not a part of her ‘central costings’ and was ‘misrepresented’.
