See video

During Education questions January 19 2015 Steve McCabe MP questioned Edward Timpson MP (Parliamentary Under-Secretary of state for Education) on the Government’s recent appointment of ‘external improvement experts’ within children’s services. Steve McCabe MP asked when the decision had been made, how many experts will be required, what they will cost and who will be responsible for evaluating the success of this experiment. The appointment of these experts by tender raises serious concerns about the commercialising of Children’s services.

Edward Timpson MP refused to answer any of the questions put to him directly instead insisting that the Government’s intervention was having a positive effect.
