We’re committed to placing an upper limit on the value of public sector exit payments – that’s why we legislated in the 2016 Act and will be laying the necessary regulations. Before we do so, and to ensure the successful implementation of these changes, we will bring forward a consultation in the first quarter of 2018 which will run for 12 weeks.
