Inflation has been at or around target since the start of 2019, and as a result wages have now outpaced inflation on a CPI basis for over a year.</p><p>On 1 April 2019, we increased the National Living Wage by 4.9% to £8.21 - an above inflation increase which meant that a full-time worker on the National Living Wage would be earning £690 more over the coming year.

The loans are provided on terms that mean they are not repaid in practice.

star this property answer text <p>Valuations of the public service pension schemes are carried out every four years. The valuations set employer contribution rates to ensure the full costs of pensions are recognised and met by employers at the point scheme liabilities arise. The last valuations of the schemes considered the position as at 31 March 2016 and were completed earlier this year. Employer contribution rates have been set and came into effect on 1 April 2019. On 19 January the then Chief Secretary to the Treasury made a written statement (HCWS1286) announcing a pause to the cost control element of the valuations. The pause was necessary following a court ruling that an element of the reforms made to schemes in 2015 gave rise to unlawful discrimination. The matter has been remitted to the Employment Tribunal to determine how the discrimination is to be remedied. The Government has confirmed that it will take steps to remedy the discrimination in all public service pension schemes. Until a remedy is agreed it is not possible to assess the value of the public service pension schemes with any certainty at this time.</p><p> </p>
