CBI comments on NAO Report on Government Staff Costs
Emma Watkins, CBI Head of Public Services Policy, said:
“Given the state of the public finances, the Government really needs to get a better grip on staff costs.
“Despite introducing a two-year pay freeze and moving towards performance-related pay, salaries have continued to rise in central government. Simply creating new posts or promoting people to get around the pay freeze will do little to help plug the deficit.
“We agree with the NAO that government departments need to do more to monitor and reduce staff costs.”
