"We do not expect them to place any significant additional burdens on local authorities as most already monitor home education"

What utter bunk and she knows it! These proposals will cost a fortune as an impact assessment would show, which is why she's going to put it off for as long as possible.

I know for a fact that my local authority EHE team costs in the region of £200,000 per year and that's with them not knowing about a large percentage of the families home educating in the county and a good number of the ones they do know about declining home visits. Ball park figure I'd say these recommendations will cost half a million pound per year in our county alone.
