This morning I went to my first meeting of the Education Select Committee, where the first enquiry we are conducting is in to SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) funding to schools and local authorities.

I'm looking forward to digging in to this and other education issue much more and supporting the Committee in reporting back to Government. You can watch the full Committee meeting here.
