To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 30 June 2017 to Question 1097, how much funding was allocated to 16-to-19 education in (a) 2014-15 and (b) 2015-16.
In light of these additional difficulties in bringing in what is a very welcome policy, what additional support will the Government give to nurseries that are preparing to deliver the scheme? We need to make sure that the resources are there for delivery.
The Secretary of State’s statement did nothing to address the service and consistent underfunding of 16 to 18-year-olds. Over the last two years, there was an underspend of £267 million. Will the Government commit themselves to reallocating those moneys as soon as possible, and also to addressing the underfunding of 16 to 18-year-olds in the future?
