Discussions on planned reforms of health, education and civil service pensions have ended and final proposals have been published, the Government announced.

Talks have continued since the start of the year in a bid to break the deadlocked row over the Government's controversial reforms, which sparked a strike by more than one and a half million public sector workers last year. Fresh industrial action is being threatened by some union leaders, possibly for later this month.
