David Cameron promises to protect schools budget if Conservatives win general election; Ed Miliband MP (Labour Leader) interview with reporter in shot SOT - Not for the first time with David Cameron, he's made a promise that he'll protect the education budget, it turns out he's going to be cutting funding in real terms, that's taking account of inflation per pupil in the schools budget, I think David Cameron is trying to put the wool over peoples' eyes about his commitment to education and of course we know the reasons for this / he's committed to going back to 1930s levels of public spending as a share of our national income, that's why he's going to have to undermine the education system and all of the other things that will follow from his promise / I believe we can do better than David Cameron and will be announcing our plans in the coming weeks / we're the party that was committed to education in government and schools, we're going to do better than David Cameron and will announce our plans at the appropriate time / I can tell you today that we will do better than him London: David Laws MP (Liberal Democrat, Minister for Schools) interview SOT - What the Conservatives have announced today is that not only that they're going to cut early years and 16-19 funding, but they're going to cut the schools budget in real terms too, that's a very bad announcement for everybody who cares about quality education in this country
