News briefing
The Labour Party claims that the government's plans to turn all schools into academies by 2022 could cost it £1.3 billion. However, the party says only £140 million has been allocated to the project, leaving a "funding black hole" of £1.1 billion. The party says the plans are "costly and unnecessary".
