Peter Aldous calls for more funding for further education

5th March 2019

Peter Aldous highlights the work done by East Coast College and Lowestoft Sixth Form College in promoting social mobility and improving the UK's productivity. He calls on the Government to recognise the strength of support from MPs by using the Spring Statement or the Spending Review to announce more funding for further education colleges.

T5. Given the vital work done by East Coast College and Lowestoft Sixth Form College in promoting social mobility and improving the UK’s productivity, will my right hon. Friend take full account of the letter sent on behalf of 164 Members from across the House and increase further education funding, ideally at next week’s spring statement, but if not, at the forthcoming spending review? [909601]

FE spending is a priority, and we have protected the base rate of funding between 2015 and 2020. I was grateful to receive that letter from colleagues and have organised a meeting on 19 March. I am not sure whether we will be able to fit 164 people in a room, but I hope my hon. Friend will be able to attend.
