We will be question Justine Greening on the Government’s efforts through the education system to improve the lives of young people and assist them on the ladder of opportunity. From nurseries to universities, we will be keen to press the Secretary of State on what her department is doing to close the skills deficit and to improve the educational outcomes for children from disadvantaged backgrounds".
