I have been long enough to be ancient, and I can recall a previous year when the announcement went to the wire. I am wondering if it was '78 when the Service familes subsequently 'striked' on our behalf down Downing Street. If there are parallels, then it wont be good news when it comes.

Diablo - '79 was the year we got 30% or thereabouts in one tranche when Mrs T won the May election. Previous Labour govts had given the pay rise over two years, but pre-election Mrs T promised to hand it out in one year, and was true to her word. My pay shot up by about 60% in six week when the 30% was added to a seniority pay rise and the start of flying training pay (RIP).

I believe that the monthly pay run usually happens on the 16th of the month. I have seen paperwork that the pay run for March will happen on the 11th. I assume therefore that any changes to pay and allowances should be annonced by the 11th.

March's pay run is always early in order to give SPVA time to go through all their end of FY protocols. They also need to upload the new pay rates and charges table so that they can operate them from 1 Apr. So yes it is getting late for the announcement but maybe SPVA already have the results of AFPBR and are not allowed to tell us. Perhaps cyclops is just waiting till Parliament goes on its Easter hols and no questions can be asked .............

I notice the Grauniad reports that:
The figure is arrived at by identifying the median of the pay increases received by 15 groups of public sector workers for 2009.
Will we be in the group that gets more or less? BTW, having noted your initials GB, do you have an inside track on this?

This particular website seems to think there may be an announcement on Tuesday 9th March....

Whether or not this is accurate, only time will tell!

BBC News - Senior public servants' pay to be frozen

Bugger all then. Who counts as "senior Military staff"... Is that 1* and above?

"But he also urged discipline in public sector pay, announcing a pay freeze on senior public servants such as NHS managers, top civil servants, judges and military leaders and the pay of consultants, GPs and dentists."

2% is fantastic news.

Bearing in mind that most people are bearing a pay freeze, some are losing pay and some are losing their jobs then I think that 2% is very generous.

Thank you Gordon. You get my vote.

He will be getting mine too.

The economic mess of his making he will be left to clean up will make Labour unelectable for the next 50 years.

It's an interesting point, does one vote for Labour in an attempt to ensure consecutive non-labour administrations from five years hence, or bank on David "Dave" Cameron sorting out the brown mess this time around?

Tricky, tricky, decisions.

2% is a good pay deal in the current economic climate

Rant on. "Now if we could just ensure adequate funding to run what is left of the UK Armed Forces that would great. Perhaps that would reduce the ill educated rhetoric delivered by senior Army Officers in an attempt to secure at the a greater proportion of the Defence Vote at the expense of a balanced future defence of the UK." Rant over
