Education Bill withdrawn in the House of Keys

Allinson pulls plug before clauses stage

The Education Bill has been withdrawn by Dr Alex Allinson in the House of Keys today (9 Feb).

It's to allow those in the profession to 'regroup' and consider whether the draft legislation 'truly reflects the ambitions and experiences of those in education' after a difficult year.

The education minister pulled the bill prior to the clauses stage with MHKs currently debating the announcement.
