On the 24th of April, the National Audit Organisation (NAO) stated that the Department for Education’s (DfE) handling of the Treasury’s increase in funds is “problematic”.

From March 2023, the treasury has granted an increase in government-funded entitlements for early years education and childcare in England, to increase parents’ participation in the labour market.

The NAO report that the DfE have produced “significant uncertainties around whether the sector can implement the changes and be financially sustainable” as a consequence of not properly accounting for the Treasury’s regular budgetary protocol and cancelling early testing plans.

Although this is completely unacceptable, its not surprising given the Tory’s 14 year commitment to ripping up our welfare state. They have routinely cut corners, showing they are not the party of the public sector.

Peter’s time as Shadow Minister for Schools, and his work as a foreign aid worker, has taught him the necessary role high quality, effective, and egalitarian education plays in British society – this requires parents having the means to support their children at home. Peter and the Labour Party are committed to responsible and rational uses of taxpayers money.
