There will be a two-year pay freeze for public sector workers, Chancellor George Osborne said today.
Unveiling what he said would be a "tough but fair" Budget, the freeze is twice as long as was envisaged before last month's election.
However, the 1.7 million lowest paid will get a flat £250 pay rise.
Elsewhere, Osborne said to control costs, the Government has decided to fix child benefit for the next three years.
