U.K.'s Hammond Is Said to Have Been Frozen Out of Key Decisions

  U.K.'s Hammond Is Said to Have Been Frozen Out of Key Decisions U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s closest advisers froze out Chancellor Philip Hammond as they drew up their plans for June’s election, according to a new book revealing the rift that developed between the two most senior teams in the British government. May herself raised her eyebrows at the mention of Hammond’s name in meetings, while his relations with her chief of staff Nick Timothy were said to have been toxic, according to the book. Hammond was denied access to the manifesto and repeatedly protested to May’s team that he didn’t get to see the whole document until too late.

Importantly, the votes are non-binding on the government, meaning Prime Minister May is not obliged to act on them. This is why DUP is able to vote with the opposition in spite of its "confidence and supply" deal with the Conservative Party.

If the government is defeated in the debate, it will increase the pressure on May to scrap the public sector pay cap for more workers, and could force a rethink over tuition fees. It would also be the first time that the informal coalition between the Conservatives and the DUP has been split.

Ian Paisley Jr, a senior DUP MP told the House of Commons on Wednesday afternoon: "I must say that myself and my colleagues are minded to support the motion ... put before the House this evening."

On Tuesday the government ended the 1% pay cap for police and prison officers and said they might be prepared to show "more flexibility" in order to allow pay raises for other public sector workers.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said that the motion calling for the "end [to] the public sector pay cap in the NHS and [to] give NHS workers a fair pay rise," was "bogus."
