In a Westminster Hall debate discussing funding for small and village schools. Huw spoke about the recent proposal to close Broad Oak Primary School. This threat is due to a lack of pupils that attend.

In a Westminster Hall debate discussing the funding of TV licenses for the over 75, Huw spoke on the BBC’s decision to provide a free TV licence only for those aged over 75 and also receiving Pension Credit.
Last week, I visited the Children’s Centre at Egerton Park. It is facing closure due to East Sussex needing to put more of its budget in adult social care. This could also cause the loss of the nursery which sits below the children’s centre. It will be a huge blow to lose these services.
