On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Today, the Secretary of State for Education and Skills has made a written statement to the House about children and vulnerable adults. Would it not have been more appropriate for the Secretary of State to come to the House to give an oral statement about how and why a sex offender was allowed to work with vulnerable children?

Clearly, whether the Secretary of State chooses to make a written or an oral statement is up to her. I understand that there are Education questions tomorrow and perhaps the hon. Lady may wish to raise the matter then.
