Police, teachers set for pay cut

Police, teachers set for pay cut

Police and teachers are braced for pay curbs after both Theresa May and Michael Gove unveiled plans to get better value for money for the taxpayer.

The starting salary for police officers is to be slashed by £4,000 to £19,000, the Home Secretary announced, while Mr Gove said schools will be free to set pay levels from September.

Both moves follow recommendations from independent panels that pay arrangments be changed.

Steve White, Vice Chairman of the Police Federation, told the BBC that his organisation was "disappointed" with the announcement.

He added: "I hope that we will still be able attract the right recruit."

Meanwhile, Mr Gove stressed that his reforms would also be about making sure schools "reward their teachers in line with their performance”.
