NotesNews: " ... The chancellor, who will today meet his most senior Lib Dem ministerial colleagues with the prime minister, confirmed that the main point of the budgets were agreed last Monday before David Cameron flew to Washington. But there were signs of tensions between the coalition partners as one senior Lib Dem figure expressed anger at a briefing by the Treasury on Friday that regional pay rates will be introduced in the public sector. This will mean that public sector workers in poorer paid parts of the country will receive lower salaries. The Lib Dem source said: "There is Lib Dem anger about how this was briefed. The reality does not meet the rhetoric. It is up to individual secretaries of state how and whether to implement regional pay. There are no plans to implement it for the civil service as a whole or to introduce it across the public sector." The Lib Dem irritation over regional pay rates highlighted tensions over Wednesday's budget. The chancellor will take one of the biggest gambles of this parliament when he announces that the 50p tax is to be scrapped, possibly from next year. ..." The Guardian
