Letter of correction from Robert Halfon:

An error has been identified in the response I gave to the right hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) during the debate.

The correct response should have been:

Including the levy and taken together, the adult education budget, apprenticeship funding and advanced learner loans will provide more funding to support adult further education participation by 2020 than at any time in England’s history.
