It is essential schools in Leicestershire remain clean and healthy following the government's decision to scrap the county council's buildings cleaning contract says Labour's education committee spokesman, reports BBC Leicester.

The government has ordered cancellation of the contract with County Direct Services after two years of operating losses. Its 650 staff are responsible for all county council buildings, including 87 schools.

Alistair Duncan commented: 'The first concern must be to see the schools are clean, in the interest of pupils' health and education. I think the people we have now are keeping the schools clean and are doing better than when they first started. To give them the push now is just silly'.
