On my visit today, I heard powerful testimonies from women who will be affected by the Esol (English for speakers of other languages) cuts. 

The cuts are part of the £450 million in savings that the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has been asked to find by the Treasury.

Barnet and Southgate College is one of the 47 colleges and about 16,000 learners that will be affected by the cuts, according to the Association of Colleges (AoC).

An estimated £45 million had been allocated to the programme of mandated learning, which is targeted at jobseekers' allowance claimants identified as having poor spoken English skills that prevent them from finding work.

Once again the Tory Government have let us down, the prime minister announced a review of how to boost integration in deprived and isolated communities to tackle extremism, including how to ensure people learn English. However cutting the funding is going against this, I will be raising this issue in Parliament.
