We will keep you updated on all developments here, as well as any other news.
Commenting on today’s Queen’s Speech, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “Ministers are living in a parallel universe. Years of harsh spending cuts have caused huge damage to public services across the country.
“People have had enough of austerity, and want proper investment in schools, hospitals, police forces and local services. Yet there was none of this in the Queen’s Speech.
“Nor was there anything about pay. Nurses, teaching assistants, council workers, care staff and other public sector employees should be rewarded for their hard work with a long overdue wage rise. The pay cap has left them extremely hard up and must go.”
