Ed Balls: 'Irresponsible to oppose pay freeze'
Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls has said Labour will support a pay freeze for public sector workers in order to help reduce the deficit.
The government announced in November that public sector pay would rise by only 1% in the two years to 2015.
Mr Balls has said he endorses that decision, saying it would be ''irresponsible'' to oppose it.
