Is No. 10 paving the way for more grammars?
In his first spring Budget, Philip Hammond declared war on the UK's productivity gap. And his first front: Britain's classrooms. Alongside an expansion of technical education, the Chancellor pledged more cash for free schools. Some see this extra money as heralding a new generation of grammars. These new free schools could later decide to become selective if the Government repeals the ban on new grammars. Is No 10 preparing for more grammars? Share Radio's Alex Clark spoke to Neil Carmichael, Conservative MP for Stroud and Chair of the Education Select Committee.
