In the years up to 2010, the "inclusion agenda" meant that many local authorities closed their special schools, denying many children and young people with significant special educational needs the opportunity to be educated in an appropriate way. This was misguided and wrong.
A man who attempted to kill 4 young children by beating them with a hammer before deliberately driving into a stone wall has had his sentence increased after the Solicitor General, Robert Buckland QC MP, referred it for being too low.
This week, Home Secretary, Amber Rudd has announced a multi-million-pound commitment to steering young people away from crime and tackling violent gangs. In my role as Solicitor General and as a member of a Ministerial Group on knife crime, I have been involved with this directly.
