This week, I was contacted by the Work and Pensions Secretary, Esther McVey, about the ongoing employment success.

The unemployment rate is currently at 4.2% - the lowest rate since 1975 - and the number of people in employment has increased by over 3.2 million since 2010 — that’s an average of over 1,000 more people in work every day.

Over the next two years alone, school funding will rise from almost £41 billion a year to more than £43 billion a year, and we are investing £5.8 billion to 2020 to create even more good school places.
