UK pay rising in real terms, says coalition
Most British workers have seen their take-home pay rise in real terms in the past year, the government has claimed.
It has produced figures showing all except the richest 10% saw their take-home wages rise by at least 2.5% once tax cuts were taken into account.
But Labour said the figures were "highly selective" and did not take into account changes to benefits.
