The Times Educational Supplement (p15) reports that Graham Lane, chair of education at Newham LBC has been elected to chair the education committee of the Local Government Association.

Mr Lane, previously chair of the council of local education authorities was elected unopposed.

Edward Lister, leader of Wandsworth LBC is to be one of the deputy chairs, with the others going to Labour and Liberal Democrats.

Mr Lane told the paper: 'For far too long education policy has been driven by central government diktat.

'I will make it my duty to build new partnerships between education authorities and government.

'Finding new and innovative ways of promoting higher standards will be a key part of our work.

'We will lobby for the end of the nursery vouchers scheme. It is doing nothing to extend the benefits to children of a solid early years education.'
