Angela Rayner responds to LGA report on secondary school places

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education, commenting on the LGA’s latest research on the looming crisis in secondary school places, said:

“Under the Tories, councils have lost the powers and funding that they need to create enough school places for the children they serve, and thousands of parents and children could lose out as a result.

“A Labour government will give councils the power and funding to open new schools and create new places wherever they are needed, ensuring no parent faces the risk of missing out on a school place for their child.”
