Stories involving Nicky Morgan

Morgan looks to distance herself from Gove

The new Education Secretary has distanced herself from the record of her predecessor Michael Gove.

Nicky Morgan appeared to play down the importance of Mr Gove's flagship free schools programme, and heaped praised on the outstanding teaching profession.

Ms Morgan added that she felt Labour and the Conservatives were more united on education policy than it appeared.


David Cameron has approved the appointment of a raft of new parliamentary private secretaries for government ministers.


'Further security needed' in mental health system

Greater measures are needed to improve the security of patients in the mental health system, Conservative MP Nicky Morgan will argue in an adjournment debate later today. Ms Morgan told PoliticsHome that if the Government does not realise the scale of the problem it is "unlikely to meet" the objectives of its February 2011 Mental Health Strategy.
