Back in July Ed Balls had visited Manchester and he was interviewed by Imagine FM. During the interview he said that he would love to visit Ewing School.
Several weeks later he was apparently too busy to visit the school, so yesterday I asked the Secretary of State, at Children Schools and Families questions, why he had gone back on his word. He seemed a bit rattled by the question, and once again he said that he would visit the school. I’ve written to him to make sure that he doesn’t go back on his word this time, and so has Diane, the Chair of the campaign group PACE.
