According to the BBC, Brown will say that he will ‘not tolerate’ inflationary pay deals in either the public or private sector and urged business leaders to be responsible and not risk the UK’s economic stability.

The speech comes on the back of new figures that claim UK unemployment is at its lowest level since the so-called ILO unemployment measure started in 1984.
