Justine Greening quotes

Jun 29 2017 - Northern Ireland

At present women from Northern Ireland are asked for payment, and from now on it is our proposal that this will no longer happen. This is clearly a sensitive issue and one which has direct implications for equality in treatment of women from Northern Ireland. The Supreme Court judgment made clear that we have the power to make these arrangements. The Government's position continues to be that we want to see safe abortion services provided for women who may need them - within the bounds of the law.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Northern Ireland

None of this changes the fundamental position that this is a devolved issue in Northern Ireland. It is for the Northern Ireland Executive and the Northern Ireland Assembly to decide on their policy going forward. This announcement does not change that position.feedback

Apr 22 2017

I have not had time to order any. But no, it won't. You can be sure, though, that it will be on every single piece of paper the Tories and Lib Dems put through letterboxes up and down the country.feedback

Apr 13 2017

We want to make sure that this new wave of grammars are open to everyone. We will be setting out our proposals in the forthcoming whitepaper.feedback

Apr 13 2017

This government believes we have not done enough to support them – partly because they do not qualify under our existing measures of disadvantage.feedback

Apr 13 2017

We believe it's not just disadvantaged children and young people that our education system can deliver much more for. This government will not lose sight of other children, from ordinary working families.feedback

Apr 13 2017

Over the years, we have seen a declining proportion of children from ordinary working families and disadvantaged backgrounds making it into grammars, and I think that is partly because of how the areas around these great schools, which are very popular, have changed. House prices have risen and priced families out of the market. These children also do less well [than] their better-off peers and we want to put them at the heart of our education policy.feedback

Apr 13 2017

It's not right to say we don't want to see them opened up to disadvantaged children – actually, that's a critical part of what we want to see changed. We know that when disadvantaged children do get into grammars, they do a great job in closing the attainment gap for those children and their better-off peers. That's why we want to see the chance for local communities to have more grammars. For children just above disadvantaged, they are getting into grammars.feedback

Apr 12 2017

Over time we will extend this to the sponsorship or establishment of more than one school, so that in the future we see our universities sponsoring thriving school chains in every town and city in the country.feedback

Apr 12 2017

This isn't about creating brand new labels for our families and our children. It isn't about singling out some for support – whilst leaving others alone. Because we know families are different, not just materially and financially, but in the way they identify themselves – in their own perceptions.feedback

Apr 12 2017

I'm not setting a quota for the number of schools that are suddenly going to become grammar schools. But we do want to start to provide a clearer analysis of the situation. Of how the children of ordinary working people are faring in our education system. And for measuring how our wider reforms can do better for these families – and so better for the country.feedback

Apr 12 2017

But we also shouldn't lose sight of the fact that many young people from an ordinary working class background already attend our existing grammar schools.feedback

Apr 12 2017

This is a government that believes that ordinary working families shouldn't have to 'make do'. We believe they deserve better than that. Because ordinary working families are the backbone of our economy, of our country. Fundamentally, children need more good schools. That will be at the heart of my forthcoming white paper: Schools That Work for Everyone – for the first time we want to properly knit together the different parts of our education system, so its constituent parts can work together to raise attainment as a whole, collectively.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Helping women to reach their full potential isn't only the right thing to do, it makes good economic sense and is good for British business.feedback

Mar 31 2017

In the end, we're talking about a new model of how grammar schools work and how selection works. It really does mean that we've got an education system that caters for the very different talents and potential of different children. Whether it is technical education… whether it is giving local communities more choice of how they want selection to work at a local level, what we are saying is that if we're really going to have things different, we have to be prepared to look at what that's going to take.feedback

Mar 31 2017

That's precisely why there's so much work going on right now to make sure what we bring forward will be a new model for how selection can work – one that works constructively to generally raise attainment.feedback

Mar 10 2017

We have to recognise that actually for grammars in terms of the disadvantaged children that they have, they really do help them close the attainment gap. And at the same time we should recognise that parents also want choice for their children and that those schools are often very over-subscribed.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I think we have to respond to that and the consultation wasn't really just about selection it was also about how other parts of the eduction system can also play a role in strengthening our overall school system, whether it was selection, whether it was universities or indeed independent schools and faith schools. So we want to make sure that we take on board all of the comments.feedback

Mar 10 2017

First of all, in terms of grammars but also the investment that we announced for more schools beyond 2020, I think it is important that we're planning ahead. We know we've got a demographic bulge that's already been in our primary system and that really is flowing into the secondary system as well. So we need to have an eye on that and, of course, as a Government we've brought forward the Schools that Work for Everyone consultation to really say 'What is it going to take to really drive social mobility?feedback

Mar 10 2017

But we also will come forward with what I hope will be a very strong package that doesn't just look at how selection has performed in the past, but very much looks forward to what a sensible approach on selection - which we do have in our system - should be in the future.feedback

Jul 07 2016

Putting them on our agenda, that's not just the right thing to do for tackling poverty, actually it's part of how we make sure Britain is a successful country in the future.feedback

Jul 07 2016

It's in our interest to help people who are in poverty to get out of poverty, and it's in our interest to see those countries develop, because they'll become the trading partners of the future.feedback

Jul 07 2016

You always have exchange rates changes. That's part and parcel of any development program.feedback

Jun 27 2016

A leadership contest now is not in the interests of our country. It will mean our party focuses inward at the very time our country most needs us to focus outward.feedback

Nov 23 2008

This government's only answer to the problems that they have got our economy into is more debt, and I think that whoever you talk to, they don't have to be an economist to see that more and more and more debt simply isn't sustainable.feedback
