David Cameron has defended his government's record on school place, after claims the Department of Education used money earmarked for school expansions to pay for a shortfall in budget for free schools.
Speaking on BBC One's The Andrew Marr Show, the Prime Minister said: "Free schools are new schools in the state sector and they are an excellent innovation.
"Two-thirds of the first free schools got good or excellent ratings from Ofsted, which is actually better than equivalent schools."
