Shadow education secretary David Blunkett said cuts to school budgets must go ahead, reports The Western Mail (p5).

Labour's position was made clear at a Cardiff news conference yesterday. Mr Blunkett was addressing the expected 500-plus cut to teacher numbers across Wales as a result of budget shortfalls, but the party's position is the same for the rest of the UK.

Mr Blunkett promised that Labour would start tackling the backlog to school building repairs within two years of taking office, through banks financing local school consortiums.
