Damian Hinds named as new Education Secretary after Justine Greening resigns

The new education secretary has a heavy in tray

Theresa May's former chief of staff has criticised former education secretary Justine Greening for stalling his plans for more grammar schools and succumbing to "the blob". The Church has stated that this regulation forces it to violate Canon Law, as it means over-subscribed Catholic schools would have to turn away children because they were Catholic.

He also lavished praise on Mr Hinds, the man who took her place at the Cabinet table, who is already being touted as a possible future PM, with Michael Gove calling him "incredibly impressive".

In November previous year the bishops urged the Catholic community to petition Justine Greening to lift the "unfair" cap, after the Government stalled on making a decision concerning its withdrawal.

He called for the government to scrap the 50 per cent faith cap back in 2014 under David Cameron's premiership and said while the policy was "well intentioned", it "precludes the creation of Catholic free schools, because the Catholic Church feels unable to support, with all the implications of commitment that that brings".

Conservative HomeDamian Hinds has been appointed as education secretary.

EAST Hampshire MP Damian Hinds has been named as the new Education Secretary in the Cabinet reshuffle announced by Prime Minister Theresa May, on Tuesday evening.

The Catholic Church in England will likely welcome his appointment, after his predecessor refused to remove the admissions cap which effectively prevents the Church from opening new schools. "We hope we will now be able to continue to develop our current plans to open up to eight new schools across East Anglia".

Mr White said Mr Hinds would have to "urgently address" the issues of funding and teacher shortages.

'This government has a strong record raising education standards and offering opportunity, particularly to those most in need, through our nurseries, schools, colleges and world-class universities.

He also sat on the education select committee and once chaired the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Social Mobility - an issue close to the Prime Minister's heart.

Justine Greening leaves the Cabinet after turning down a job as Work and Pensions Secretary.
