#LoveFE lobby of Westminster : 16th June 2015

As part of the #lovefe campaign to save adult education from proposed 24% cuts to the England lifelong learning budget, we held a lobby of parliament at Westminster on the afternoon of Tuesday 16th June 2015. Newly elected MPs were asked to stop the cuts and commit to properly funded lifelong learning.

Our region was represented at the lobby by Hartlepool College, Newcastle College and Sunderland College
