The Liberal Democrats have forced the Government to back down from calling a vote to defend their recent changes to the school census.
Lord Storey, who is the Liberal Democrat Education Spokesperson in the House of Lords said:
“It is deeply concerning that the Government are creating a vast database of children’s nationalities without giving any reason why it is needed.
“If this information could help them provide better educational support, that would be one thing – but the Government have failed to give any evidence that this would be the case.
“In the context of the Government’s offensive anti-immigration rhetoric, and policies like asking firms to report the number of foreign staff they employ, I’m extremely worried that this is just another way for them to make people who live and work in the UK, but were not born here, feel unwelcome.
“My colleagues and I forced the Government to roll over and let our regret motion pass. They are clearly not willing to defend this deeply illiberal policy and we have dealt a blow to the dangerous and divisive policies of this Conservative Government”.
