Over 8,000 specialist teachers could be made redundant unless ministers end current delays and allocate the £50m still needed to fund the teaching of children whose first language is not English, the Independent on Sunday reported (p8).

Bids for Section 11 funding should have been invited five months ago. Councils believe the delay in inviting bids has been caused by inter-departmental disputes over the distribution of funds.
