Parliamentary question on Education, 21/06/2021


Categories: News

On the 21st of June I had an opportunity to press the Secretary of State for Education on the matter of sprinklers in English schools. Zurich Municipal and many other stakeholders across the UK have repeatedly called for Ministers to bring England in line with Scotland and Wales, where sprinklers are compulsory. Ministers so far have chosen to pursue a programme of installing sprinklers only in new schools over 11 meters tall.

You can watch my question and the Minister’s answer on Parliament TV, or read a transcript of it on Hansard.
