My hon. Friend is making some very important points about the impact on the economy of short-sighted cuts to the post-16 education budget.

Friend think the impact will be on progressing the northern powerhouse if we cut back significantly on the investments we need to see in productivity in places like Barnsley in south Yorkshire?
