    Liberal Democrat MP Sarah Teather has today expressed her disappointment that the Home Office do not plan to increase asylum support rates. The news means support given to individuals seeking asylum will have been frozen for over 3 years.

    Liberal Democrat MP Sarah Teather has today welcomed changes to Air Passenger Duty (APD) announced in the Budget.

    Under the current system, introduced under the last Labour government, charges are based on the destination's distance from the UK. As this is calculated on the basis of a country's capital city, it can be cheaper to fly to more distant locations in the United States than to destinations such as Jamaica or Barbados.

    Sarah Teather has warmly welcomed proposals which will see Brent receive over £13million more in school funding than under the current system. This comes as part of an extra £350million boost to schools in the least fairly funded areas in the country.

    The proposals announced in Parliament today by Liberal Democrat Education Minister David Laws will mean that funding will be allocated to local areas on the basis of the actual characteristics of their pupils and schools, rather than simply on the basis of historic levels of spending. Funding will be based on characteristics including the number of deprived pupils and pupils with English as an additional language.
