Spalding Labour debates grammar school education

Grammar Schools and selective education was debated by Spalding members of the Labour Party at their recent constituency meeting, following the Prime Minister’s announcement that she wanted to extend such schools.

It was unanimously agreed that selective education was not a good thing.

A report was given on the party conference in Liverpool, where the result of the leadership challenge was announced and it was acknowledged that the disruption caused by the vote was unnecessary.

It was agreed that the Labour Party should now unite behind Jeremy Corbyn to become a strong opposition and a government in waiting.

Membership continues to increase and Lesley Hough, chair of Lincolnshire Labour Party, gave a talk on the preparations that are being made for the county elections in 2017.

The next meeting will be held on October 27.
