Government must reverse damaging school cuts – Vince Cable


Ahead of the Autumn statement Twickenham MP Vince Cable has written to the Chancellor urging him to rethink school cuts.    It is the latest part of the MP’s continuing campaign to defend local schools.    Since the General Election Vince Cable has secured a parliamentary debate on funding of London schools and only last week spoke at a mass rally at Westminster.

It has emerged that under the Government’s plans all state schools in Twickenham are facing a real term cut to their funding according to the NAHT (National Association of Head Teachers)

Vince Cable said:

“The government’s decision to plough ahead with these heavy cuts to school budgets show that they are continuing to ignore the needs of children and teachers up and down the country.

These cutbacks will have a devastating effect on local schools, leading to teacher redundancies and bigger class sizes.  I urge the Government to think again and reverse these cuts which will hold back the life chances of too many children Twickenham.”
