Karl welcomes new priority school building funding

Lincoln’s Member of Parliament, Karl McCartney MP, has welcomed a new £2 billion fund to help rebuild schools most in need of urgent repair, which could benefit schools in Lincolnshire.


Karl McCartney MP said: “Delivering the best schools for our children, so the next generation can gain the skills they need to succeed in life, is a key part of the Conservatives’ long-term economic plan to secure Britain’s future.


“That’s why it is great news for young people in Lincoln that there will be a new round of funding for the Priority Schools Building Programme.


“It’s only by taking difficult decisions on public spending that Conservatives have been able to afford to protect the schools budget and provide funding for school rebuilding.  Only by sticking to our long-term economic plan can we provide the first class education that our young people need to get on in life.”
