Holding answer received on 25 July 2019

The Department intend to put the school uniform guidance on a statutory footing when a suitable legislative opportunity arises. No education bill was announced in the most recent Queen’s speech, which set out the proposed legislative programme for this session of Parliament.

Statutory guidance cannot be issued without the legislative powers to do so.
