Parliamentary question: Education: Public Funding

Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Nick Gibb MP, the Minister for School Standards on 4 Jul 2017
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP
"Will the Minister stop using this Orwellian double-speak about an increase in the budget? We know what we are talking about. In real terms, and per pupil, the budget has not increased in the last seven years, teachers have had a £3-per-hour cut in their wages and morale is at rock bottom. Will the Minister at least admit that we need urgent action to increase funding and reverse the cuts that have already taken place?"
Nick Gibb MP, the Minister for School Standards
"It is Orwellian to say that there has been a cut in funding when there has not. All along, I have acknowledged that there are cost pressures affecting schools over the four-year period."
