As a result of cuts to the local government budget imposed by this Tory government, it appears that Lincolnshire County Council is contemplating discontinuing the provision of free transport for our grammar schools.

This must be vigorously opposed, as it means that grammar school education, which was meant to be free for all, will become, in rural areas, the preserve of the selected few.

Labour councillors will oppose the move, but we also need the support of the broader public to make sure that the best value education is available to all local children, regardless of their economic background.

I am also calling upon the Conservative Party’s county councillors and the MP John Hayes to help to retain free school transport.
