LETTER: Do not hold your breath over schools funding

Your front page story welcomed the cash for schools - £6 million to spend between now and 2020.

However, on page 25 you report that schools in Cambridgeshire will be worse off by £23 millions by 2020.

I find it ironic that Government Brexit supporters constantly state that our economy is the best in Europe. (In spite of this we spend less on the NHS than other Western European countries).

So how is that we cannot find money for the NHS nor for School nor for Social Services.

Of course when Mrs May does a deal with Mr. Trump all our financial troubles will be over.

Do not hold your breath.
