Playing Field Sell-0ff Revealed

Posted: Fri, 17 Aug 2012 08:39

According to the Daily Telegraph Michael Gove the Education Secretary has sold off more than the 21 Playing Fields he first claimed.

Michael Gove has ignored the opposition of the School Playing Fields Advisory Panel to approve sell-offs five times in the past 15 months, documents show. It has also emerged that the number of sales given the go-ahead by Mr Gove is far higher than the amount admitted by the Coalition this month.

Mr Gove apologised for publishing the wrong figures, saying he had been given incorrect information by his officials.
