DAVID Mowat MP challenged education ministers about the low level of funding for Warrington’s schools.


The Warrington South MP questions education minister David Laws during a debate in the House of Commons last week.


Warrington is currently the 137th best-funded local education authority out of 152 authorities and yet received no additional money from the Government’s recent uplift.


Mr Mowat said: “It’s quite unacceptable that Westminster, ranked 10th best-funded authority in the country, is to be given more money whilst Warrington gets nothing.


“Teachers and pupils in Warrington are working hard and achieving great results, but those results could be even better if the schools weren’t constantly scrapping around for funds.


“That’s why I’ve been campaigning for a national funding formula to address these disparities and allocate funds according to the needs of the pupils.”
