Schools strategy 'in disarray', Labour claims

Michael Gove's education policy is in "disarray" while the Government is more concerned about "warring egos" than school standards, Labour claimed today.

Replying to Mr Gove's statement, Mr Hunt told the Commons that recent headlines reflected "a Government more concerned about warring egos than school standards and a Prime Minister unable to control his Cabinet".

"But while ministers carry on their briefings, sackings and apology, the education and safeguarding of children in the great city of Birmingham has to be this House's priority," he added.
