Hull’s Lib Dem council group have hit out after the council have been used to spread the government’s pro-Brexit message. The government recently issued an instruction to local government to use their communication channels, despite their being no certainty about what is actually going to happen.
Today, the Liberal Democrats have called on the Conservative Government to ban all arm sales to Turkey. In Hull today hundreds have taken to protesting against the incursion of Turkish military into North Syria.
Liberal Democrat education spokesperson, Cllr Linda Tock, has criticised the response from the Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson, to a request for more funding for Hull’s schools.
Figures released in the summer showed that Hull’s schools had suffered a significant cut in funding in the last four years. The Liberal Democrat group on Hull City Council have said the Conservative government has ignored the real problems of educational funding, leading to a crisis for schools across the city.
Responding to the relaunch of the National Education Union’s ‘School Cuts’ website, which reveals that more than 15,000 schools will have less money per pupil in real terms in 2020 than they did in 2015, Liberal Democrat Shadow Education Secretary Layla Moran said:
“The Conservatives continue to fail our children. This data removes the wool that Boris Johnson tried to throw over our eyes – that he is making parents and teachers wait for the money their schools desperately need.
