- Angela Raynor visits Plymouth
- Labour’s Bold Plans for Education
- Rayner: “Luke has been a great voice for Plymouth in Westminster.”
Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner visited Plymouth on Thursday to discuss Labour’s radical plans to save the crumbling education system. The next Labour Government has pledged a cradle to grave free education service, which will nurture every child and every adult to find an educational path for them.
Labour will reverse the cruel Tory cuts to Sure Start and create a new service, Sure Start Plus, with enough centers to provide a genuinely universal service, available in all communities, focused on the under-2s. The next Labour government will make sure schools are adequately resourced, with an investment that is vitally needed. And Labour will make lifelong learning a reality, by allowing everyone to retrain and up-skill.
Angela Rayner, Labour Shadow Education Secretary, said:
“Luke has been a great voice for Plymouth in Westminster. We are going to invest in our children’s future. We are going to make sure all 2, 3, and 4-year-olds have the childcare they need with 30 hours of free childcare for the parents of Plymouth regardless of their income. We are going to have free school meals for primary school children, and we are going to pay for it by applying VAT to Private Schools. Other countries provide free education, so why can’t we? Vote for Luke on December 12th.”
Luke Pollard, running for re-election as the MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, said:
“It is great having Angela down in Plymouth today. Our teachers do a fantastic job here in Plymouth under really tough circumstances. Labour’s plans for revolutionising the education system are fantastic. I talk a lot about the climate emergency and how we have to tackle it. The Green Industrial Revolution will bring major changes to the industry, it is more important than ever that people have the opportunity to retrain and upskill throughout their lives.”
Charlotte Holloway, Labour’s Candidate for Plymouth Moor View, said:
“When I am on the doorstep talking to parents in their homes. Labour plans for education are radical but also practical; they will change children’s lives, change people’s lives. Let’s turn this City red and deliver for our children.”
