Peter Lilley has today written to the Government to protest at the puny allocation of funds to Hertfordshire to fund starter homes for teachers and other public sector staff.
Peter Lilley said: “Hertfordshire has higher housing costs than almost every other county. That?s why our schools are facing a recruitment crisis. Yet Hertfordshire has received money to help only half as many teachers as Hampshire, Kent and Surrey. I have asked the Minister to explain this grotesque unfairness ? or better still to remedy it.?
