CSF Bill, House of Commons, Public Committee, 4 February, 2010
The final session of the CSF Bill, Commons Public Committee was held under the shadow of a timetable motion. However, it did manage to get to discussing Clause 26 on home education. Not ideal, but encouraging in that the only speaker in favour of the Clause was the Schools Minister, even one of her Labour colleagues pressed the DfCSF to back down from their proposals. Graham Stuart spoke for an hour – I have to confess that I was confused by that.
The video of the whole session can be found here.
The text in Hansard starts here.
The video cannot be saved, but I have recorded the audio, and broken it into blocks of main speakers – apart from Graham Stuart’s which is split into 3, 20 minute sections! You can listen to them below or download them from my Cherbit files by following the download links.
