Kevin Brennan never rebelled against their party in this parliament
Following on from what Peter said, he referred to clause 7 of the Bill where the Secretary of State “must”, where a school is eligible for intervention, make an academy order. That is an assumption that will not even be considered for any other method of school improvement. Does that not fetter the ability of Ministers to take a decision based on evidence?
The Secretary of State already “may” do that. Why “must” they do it?
But you can do that already.
