On 18 November, Parliament voted for a motion that called on the Government to deliver funding for the purpose of recruiting at least an additional 2,000 full-time teachers. Given teachers’ additional workload, that is clearly urgent. The cabinet secretary’s statement did not include that funding. Does that mean that the decision has been taken not to comply with the will of Parliament on that, or is an announcement imminent on providing the funding that has been clearly called for?
