School Standards and Framework Bill — Reinstitution of standards for educational premises — 24 Mar 1998

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

I am conscious of the fact that, later today, we shall have an opportunity to debate the issue of Office for Standards in Education inspections and the chief inspector's annual report. Although there may be many hon. Members who find some aspects of the chief inspector's comments controversial, I doubt that any would disagree with one of his comments in his 1996 annual report:

"Teachers who lack proper resources or who work in poor buildings experience problems which at best frustrate and at worst defeat their best efforts to do a decent job."

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:--

The House divided: Ayes 39, Noes 279.
