Cambridge MP slams education underfunding in county

The Liberal Democrat MP for Cambridge has called on the Prime Minister to stop the chronic underfunding of schools in Cambridgeshire.

Julian Huppert told the House of Commons that education spending in the county was £600 per pupil lower than the English average.

Mr Huppert blamed the previous Labour and Conservative governments for the situation.

The Speaker, John Bercow, had to issue a rebuke to MPs after there were groans when Mr Huppert got up to speak at Prime Minister's Questions.
