Teacher unions have spoken out against Labour's plan to use National Lottery funds to boost education spending, reports The Times (p1).

National Association of Head Teachers' general secretary David Hart said although the money would go on important initiatives, he was sceptical about lottery cash being used for 'basic needs in schools'.

The National Union of Teachers said essentials such as teacher training should not be reliant on unreliable funding sources like the National Lottery.

Labour leader Tony Blair announced that under a Labour government National Lottery funds would be diverted from causes such as the Millennium Commission and would be spent on projects such as homework clubs, health centres and information technology training for teachers.
