Letter to the Chronicle

Dear Sir

Instead of the Words from Westminster column continually knocking Crewe and Nantwich and talking down the area, wouldn't it be good to read something positive.

Perhaps I can give Chronicle readers a taste of my Words from Westminster should the voters of Crewe and Nantwich put their trust in me to be their MP.

The following written parliamentary question was answered recently: "How many pupils in Crewe and Nantwich constituency obtained five or more A* to C GCSE grades in each academic year since 1997?"

Responding, the Minister revealed that in every year of Labour in Government local school results have improved and overall a third more pupils now obtain five or more A* to C grades, rising from 45.7% in 1997 to 61.3% in 2008.

Congratulations to the young people of Crewe and Nantwich who have worked so hard to achieve this progress, a far cry from the Tories' "Broken Britain".

In light of this wonderful news will David Cameron still proclaim "We cannot go on like this"? Well I want to see the improvements in education carry on, that's why I support Labour's continued investment and oppose the Tories' promised "savage cuts".

I also wish to congratulate the hardworking staff in local schools who have made this improvement possible. All the teachers, classroom assistants and ancillary staff who do so much to give our children a great start in life. I speak to many parents in Crewe and Nantwich and I know they are very proud of their child's school and the progress that we've made together.

These achievements should be sung from the rooftops.

Yours faithfully

David Williams
Labour's Parliamentary Candidate
for Crewe and Nantwich
