LETTER: School funding in Crawley

Your views.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer has announced in this week’s Autumn Statement that there will be a new national formula for school funding, following a campaign from MPs which I was pleased to be part of.

The main reason for my writing is to thank you for the coverage that the Crawley Observer has given to the cause – we will continue to monitor this situation to ensure a fairer outcome for local pupils.

I am still looking forward to presenting my Crawley petition in the House of Commons.

Henry Smith MP, Crawley Constituency
