Hutton Review of Fair Pay: Final report

In March 2011, Will Hutton published the Final Report of his Independent Review into Fair Pay in the Public Sector, along with his recommendations to the Government.

He was commissioned by the Prime Minister and the Chancellor in June 2010, to make recommendations on promoting pay fairness in the public sector by tackling disparities between the lowest and the highest paid in public sector organisations.

In his Final Report, Will Hutton makes recommendations for a new settlement for public sector leadership. Under this deal, senior public servants’ pay will be directly linked to their performance and will be explained transparently to the public. In return, public service leaders are entitled to expect improved public appreciation of the responsibilities of senior public service roles, and the ethos of public service that motivates them.
