  • Education and Social Mobility 22 Nov 2016

    I am very grateful to you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for calling me towards the end of this interesting debate. I have noticed that there is a gaping hole at the centre of the Opposition’s case on grammar schools. If grammar schools are based on a good principle, why would Labour oppose extending them? And if they are based on a bad principle, why is it not committed to abolishing them?...
