‘Open EYE’ meets Barry Sheerman, MP

From the ‘Open EYE’ Steering Group members Margaret Edgington, Anna Firth, Richard House and Lynne Oldfield:

On Thursday 24 January, we met with the Chair of the Select Committee on Children, Schools and Families, Barry Sheerman MP, from which meeting it is clear that Open EYE’s concerns are being taken very seriously at the highest level. It seems likely that at least some of the issues raised in the Select Committee’s previous investigation of the early years, held some 6 years ago, are soon to be revisited by the Committee, and furthermore, Mr Sheerman has agreed to continue a dialogue with the group and to ensure that the concerns of Open Eye are fed back to the Committee and to DSCF Ministers. Should the Committee return to this issue, Mr Sheerman has also agreed to hold a second meeting with Open Eye.
