Whilst the increase in public sector may not be deemed that important, it should be noted that it is set to rise by another 250,000 by 2008.

Given the levels of public sector pay outside the Greater South East region, such increases in public sector employment should be analysed for potential crowding out/crowding in effects in local labour markets. This is an area that does not appear to have been over worked in the UK.
