Debate resumed from 1 September, on motion by Dr Kemp:

That the bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr Lee moved by way of amendment:

That all words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

"whilst not declining to give the Bill a second reading, the House condemns the Government for:

(1) using the important issue of literacy in a cynical political fashion;

(2) failing to provide government schools with additional resources in line with its increased expenditure for the non-government sector; and

(3) failing to meet its 1996 promise and 1999 Budget commitment to maintain funding for teacher professional development".
