Nick Clegg has rebutted the suggestion of 'mixed messages' from his Cabinet colleagues over the issue of regional pay, insisting that they are "entirely consistent".
"There isn't a question of any regional pay" he said, talking to Political Editor Adrian Masters this morning. Mr Clegg said that any changes to public sector pay, such as the "local facing market-based pay" being studied by pay review bodies, would be "done sensitively".
"Nothing's being imposed from above, and nothing's any different to how it was under Labour when they introduced local-facing pay in the courts service" he said.
