Good speech by @GavinWilliamson at @SMFthinktank:

"We have to end the focus on qualifications for qualifications sake. We need fundamental reform: a wholesale rebalancing towards further and technical education."

the government has fired a starting gun before recess for major FE and HE reform in the autumn. It is clear they want to rebalance towards more level 4/5 and continue to drive work-based training (1/3)

You will rarely see a select committee chairman spring a trap during questioning quite so smoothly as Greg Clark did with Huawei bosses this morning

Quoted @Steven_Swinford

Rishi Sunak says that ‘without question’ there will be ‘deadweight’ in £1,000 job retention bonus - companies that get the bonus but have no intention of sacking staff

Says ‘broad’ approach is justified by severity and scale of the crisis

Nice to have an adult conversation about trade-offs

Striking chart in the FT shows the current deficit though right is... unlikely to be consequence-free.

Too many (incredibly welcome) measures announced today by @RishiSunak for a tweet - so here's a screenshot of my facebook post, summarising the main ones.

These measures will support people and businesses across #harborough #oadby #wigston

Given uncertainty about development of economy, jobs, virus etc feels right to me that Chancellor is clear he'll be back to do more, not trying to do everything at once. Be under no illusion - this was a big package on top of enormous interventions so far

Well done to @RishiSunak for creating a £2 billion scheme to help hundreds of thousands of young people find work.

- Bonus points for naming it after one of the greatest kids TV shows of the 1980s.

1/ We’re launching a new programme to give hundreds of thousands of young people the best possible chance of getting on and getting a job.

I’m making available an initial £2 billion and there will be no cap on the number of places available. #PlanForJobs

Very good stuff. @RishiSunak continues to get ahead of events & hit the problems hard

This is absolutely incredible. The policies, the statement, the delivery. Without question the most impressive despatch box performance I can recall. Congratulations @RishiSunak 👏

1/ For Joshua Wong, the possibility of going to jail in China has never been more real. The national security law passed in Beijing and enacted in Hong Kong on 1 July appears to be tailor-made for them in many ways.

Replying to @TomTugendhat: This is extraordinarily courageous.

I hope that local councils & businesses will use this creatively - there are a lot of projects which are suddenly possible with a huge amount of workers paid by central govt - local environment could benefit a lot

This is great and something I have argued for. Successfully delivering it will require a monumental effort - particularly from councils.
