Public sector pay review bodies are set to defy the government and press for across-the-board salary rises, the newspaper claims.

The six independent review bodies, representing 1.4 million public sector employees, are said to be preparing to press for catch-up pay rises where public sector workers have seen their salaries decline relative to the private sector and other professions. Review bodies' reports tot he government in January could well recommend overall increases in the pay bill despite Chancellor Kenneth Clarke's warning that pay rises would have to be met from within existing budgets.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, the fiercest clashes over pay are expected to be with teachers, doctors and the armed forces.
