Andrea Speaks Up For Education Funding

I have spoken in a Westminster Hall Debate regarding Education Funding.

I passionately believe that education is the key to social mobility. Whilst education funding was ring fenced and protected by the Government, post 16 education was not. Recent research by the Institute for Fiscal Studies shows  that more can be done to increase per pupil funding for 16-18 year olds in education, and I believe that the Government must make this a priority to enhance social mobility and give our young people the best start in life.
