DUP Deputy Leader Nigel Dodds MP said,

“The DUP wants to see fair pay for public sector workers.  We have consistently argued against the pay cap therefore will be voting for the motion in the House of Commons today.
 
Whilst others chased headlines and engaged in House of Commons stunts during the Queen’s Speech debate, the DUP has sought to ensure public servants throughout the United Kingdom get a fair deal.
 
We welcome the Prime Minister’s commitment to flexibility on the pay cap.  At the General Election, the Government received a clear message about austerity.  The Chancellor has said he is “not deaf” to the voice of the electorate. 
 
Having delivered hundreds of millions of extra pounds for health, education and public services through our deal with the Government, we will continue to deliver on other key objectives both for Northern Ireland and for the United Kingdom as a whole."
