Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, responded to an urgent question asked by Shadow Education Minister, Kevin Brennan in the House of Commons on 21 June on secondary education and the future of GCSEs and exam boards.
Watch and read the urgent question and the views expressed by MPs on Parliament TV and in Commons Hansard. Also find current parliamentary material on Education in the Topics and News sections.
Urgent questions are asked at the end of Question Time. If something has happened, normally a matter of public importance, which an MP believes requires an immediate answer from a government minister, they may apply to the Speaker to ask an urgent question.
If the Speaker agrees, the question will be asked at the end of Question Time.
