NotesNews - The Government is poised to raid the 5 billion NHS modernisation fund to help finance next week's special pay deal for hard-pressed nurses. But the Health Secretary, Frank Dobson, will soften the budgetary blow with extra cash hidden in his 'back pocket'. Ahead of the annual pay review body reports for 1.3 million public sector workers, the Cabinet yesterday agreed to give staff their full pay rise this year instead of the staged awards which the Chancellor, Gordon Brown, insisted upon during his first months at the Treasury. [Ewen MacAskill, Lucy Ward and Michael White, The Guardian, 29 January 1999]
