Green: 'We need to maintain the downward pressure on the deficit'

Green: 'We need to maintain the downward pressure on the deficit'

Damian Green, First Secretary of State, tells the Today programme on the current public sector pay cap: "Clearly what we need to do is to be fair to the public sector workers and fair to the taxpayers."

He adds: "If you just let public spending rip, then what you get is a massive debt which is unfair to future generations."

He also pointed to the coming report on workers' rights from former Labour adviser Matthew Taylor "as a very good symbol of cross-party working in the national interest".
