The NUT’s parliamentary work aims to develop effective working relationships with members of both Houses of Parliament. We seek to influence politicians across the political spectrum, policy, parliamentary debate and legislation on education issues as well as those which impact on teachers and children more generally.The NUT regularly submits written evidence and gives oral evidence to parliamentary inquiries as well as briefing MPs, Peers and local government.
The Chancellor will deliver his Spring Statement on 13 March. Find out more about our campaign against school cuts here and back our call that the Government should start investing in education.
